Effects of crown scorch on survival and diameter growth of slash pines

Effects of crown scorch on survival and diameter growth of slash pines

Southern Journal of Applied Forestry 11(4): 180-184

Slash pines (Pinus elliottii) planted 25 years earlier were prescribed burned during January 1982 under marginally severe burning conditions. Thirty percent of the trees, averaging 8 in. dbh and 60 ft in height, suffered total crown scorch but no consumption. Although all trees survived, growth loss in excess of 1-year's growth over the following two growing seasons was revealed from increment core analysis. Even slightly scorched trees showed a 15% loss of radial growth during the same period, but the reasons for this are less evident.
