Description: Webinar - Dr. John Kush, PhD, Research Fellow, Auburn University SFWS Longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) dominated the Alabama landscape for millennia prior to European settlement. As the original longleaf pine forests were harvested, there was little regard for regeneration; "the supply of wood was endless." In response to the demand for fiber and the perceived slow growth of longleaf pine, loblolly pine (P. taeda) plantation management dominated for decades. Today, the southern landscape and markets are changing. Timber markets are no longer what they were. Landowners have objectives beyond management for timber, but few believe longleaf can compete with other southern pines.
