Description: Regenerating longleaf pine (Pinus palustris) is key to its long-term sustainable production of forest resources and its perpetuation as the dominant tree species in a variety of important ecosystems ranging from xeric to mesic to hydric site conditions. Early regeneration to problems and the subsequent efforts to overcome these are significant features of the continuing longleaf pine saga. This chapter discusses recent restoration relevant to longleaf pine regeneration, disturbance dynamics including fire as an ecological process and describes the uniqueness of longleaf pine's regeneration environment.
