I think that it will recover given the resilience of youth.

Magicman - I don't suppose you have any recent pictures of your little longleaf pine trees? They should be nearing 7 years in the ground now and this Yankee was curious how big they got in that time.

I plan to go to the Cabin this week and I will try to remember to take a few pictures.  Actually I think that Jeff took a few when he was there.  I know that there was a deer rubbed tree.  We will see.

Thanks Jeff.  As you can see, the ones that emerged from the "grass/candle stage" first are much taller than some that sat for a couple of years.  The tallest is probably 12'+ tall.  Deer continue to give some of them misery.

Deer here tear up the cedars and walk by all the small hardwoods to get to them . I wonder if they do it because of the smell or if there is a balm of sorts in the bark ? Nice documentation on these MM .

Thank you Jeff and Magicman. It's both satisfying and amazing to see the growth of those trees.

This Longleaf Pine is 7 years old and is one of the first to emerge from the "grass stage" the first year.

Longleaf is one of my favorite trees, and that is pretty impressive growth on that one.

Magicman,
    I live in an area that - according to my local forester - is not included in the natural range of the longleaf. He is hoping to prove otherwise as it will open the door for assistance to landowners in reforestation. At least that is what I recall was the jist of the conversation from a couple years ago. I am only a county or two from the native area. I'm only a 40 away from a transplanted GA specimen. I can foresee at least a few taking root even closer... ;D

Being outside of someone's line does not define the actual soil composition of your property.  I would take soil samples and label them for Longleaf Pine and see what the results are.

Yes, longleaf love the fire..you burn after the first year of planting until the bottom branch is close to head high.

You send the fire through it quickly so it doesnt put so much heat on it as a slow backing fire would.

Itll look like you killed them but theyll come back awesome. Looks like yours did.

Theyre a slower growing tree vs loblolly and slash; but longleaf brings good pinestraw money and heavier wood. But the best soil for them is sandy and well drained. Slash and loblolly dont like sand hills too good. I would plant them near bottoms instead.


Oh and by the way..be careful replanting in crop land..youll get cankers left and right due to the fertilizer the crop land used. Ive seen several CRP fields cankered up due to this.

Sonderegger pine has longleaf structure, but grows more like loblolly.  Here in Texas I have seen some incredible growth on them.  Usually no grass stage.
