Document Description
For mastication and hand piling activities in the 15 to 20 year old pine plantations, a target of 130 trees per acre will result in average spacing of 18 feet. This will be sufficient to retain high productivity, yet open the pine dominated stands so that following future activities such as under-burning may be implemented. Pruning specifications will retain at least 30% live crown ratios. Generally prune heights will be 6 to 10 feet from the ground. The main goal for pruning is to allow a ground fire with three to four foot flame heights to slowly progress through the stand without becoming a crown fire. Piles will be situated in openings and may be covered to extend burning windows into the winter. Measurements to realize the outcomes shall be enforced through a written prospectus and developed contract specifications.
