White Pine Silviculture for Timber and Wildlife Habitat in New England

White Pine needles

This update of the 1978 guide (Lancaster and Leak 1978) includes new information on practical silvicultural alternatives such as low-density management, pine-oak mixtures, and wildlife management options. We include the latest on regeneration techniques—a current urgent problem—including the influence of prior agricultural disturbance. Site relationships, successional trends, growth and yield, and economics are discussed as well as suggested stand prescriptions. There are several widely different approaches for managing white pine; we have tried to cover the options.
