New Management Technique Offers Promise for Longleaf Pine Forests and Beyond
SRS researchers and partners developed a new technique for managing longleaf pine forests called the Proportional-B (Pro-B) Method. Results show forest personnel can easily learn and apply Pro-B and achieve desired outcomes in the forest. This new method makes uneven-aged management more cost-effective and more accessible. SRS scientists believe Pro-B could revolutionize the way foresters manage forests in the future. By developing new uneven-aged management approaches, Station scientists are increasing the number of options available to forest managers involved in restoring and sustaining longleaf pine ecosystems.
