Abstract

The AA. investigated Table Mountain pine stands growing on dry, west facing slopes in southwestern Virginia. In stands the AA. sampled most Table Mountain pines belonged to a cohort that originated in the early 1900s, probably following a severe burn. Recent disturbances changed the stands considerably : ice storms, pine beetle infestation. These disturbances stimulated little pine regeneration. The results suggest that without fire, long-term maintenace of Table Mountain pine is improbable
