Date Issued:

Summary:
Pinelands within Everglades National Park, FL primarily result from natural regeneration of scattered cull pine left during logging in the late 1930s. Hardwood species are present within the pine forest understory; fire prevents these understory shrubs from becoming trees. The National Park Service uses prescribed fires to maintain the pine forests. The authors report the results of 22 years of studies conducted to determine the impact of fire and the rate of hardwood recovery within the Everglades pinelands (Long Pine Key area of the park).
