- Herbaceous Weed Control
Also occurring during the life of your stand is the growth from unwanted herbaceous weeds. It is necessary that you take care of these herbaceous plants. When you do herbaceous weed control on your stand you increase the quality of the lumber and speed up the stands growth to reach the maturity of the stand quicker.
- Subsoiling and Scalping
In order to have a successful stand, you should first subsoil and scalp the area. Subsoiling is done to aerate the land by breaking up the dirt. This process also helps break up the dirt so that the dirt is able to absorb water at a higher capacity. Scalping is also important to have a successful pine tree stand. Scalping is taking the top of the dirt and removing the grasses and other plant life so that the new pine seedlings do not have to compete for sunlight, water or root space.
Another key to having a successful pine tree stand is fertilizer. Adding fertilizer during your stands rotation has many benefits such as better quality timber and shorter rotation lengths. Fertilizer help trees reach their maturity size at a younger age.
