Start burning Longleaf when it’s 2 years old (when it doesn’t have candles)
It’s best to burn it twice in the first 5 years, anything after that just depends on your objectives.

Matt and I may differ on this one a little (I know, unusual!). We try to get a fire in lob at about 7-8 years old and defiantly try to burn it before thinning. It makes a thinning a lot easier and better looking if it has been burned first.

Last 2 days, fire was going through hardwood all the way to water - I like it!!


Yeah I’ve burned them at 7-9 years of age, but typically I do not. Reason being up here is topography. We have so many hills and valleys. I actually burned some Wednesday that were 5. It was a small tract, humidity was 55-60% and we were able to back through it. We tried small strip heads and ended up with a couple really hot places. 😳😂



How early do y’all introduce fire to long leaf stands?


2 if possible, 3 normally.

What they said. I like to roll one through at 2-3 years old. I’ve burned a pretty good bit of it this year from 2 years old to 7 years old. Here’s pics of some of the 2 year old stands. I even had some that were 1 year old that were planted in a bare spot when the first planting failed. They got burned with the 2 year old trees and they are fine.

Good deal, thank y’all for the info. I’m assuming you don’t want a really hot fire when they’re that young? Are y’all just letting a backing fire ease through them?

That depends. When soil moisture is as high as it is now, on a day with humidity in the 45-55 percent range I’d almost prefer a series of quick strip heads. Backing fires are ok but if they linger on young longleaf for several minutes they can be just as damaging as a raging head fire.

Gotcha, so basically just need to do what is necessary to avoid damaging them whether it’s backing fire or strip fire depending on conditions.

I cut mature stands of loblolly five years ago and replanted in long leaf. Missed the burning windows in year two due to insufficient fuel load to carry the fire. The following year we had an extremely mild winter and the long leafs were producing candles by the time deer season ended so I missed burning in year three. The loblolly seed bank on this site produced thousands of seedlings which by this year were 12 feet tall in some places. I have a hand crew on site this week cutting all of the volunteer loblolly which will hopefully release the remaining long leaf. I will burn this January or February. Been a mess to deal with. When replanting long leaf, always, always, always burn in year two or three to clear out the volunteer pines that will infest the site.

It's been way too wet to burn at my place, but I was able to brush cut couple small thickets that would not burn last round. Hoping to burn late April or early May.

More important is to burn the clearcut BEFORE planting longleaf. This is almost always the source of the loblolly infestation. They come in later too but a good site prep burn is critical to a successful longleaf planting.

We burn over standing water pretty regularly. It's rarely too wet even though folks think it is. Burnable fuel dries out in a couple days. Shade is more of a hindrance to a good burn.

Been getting it done. Here’s pics of hardwood burns, pine burns, trying to kill loblolly burns and prairie burns, all from the last couple of weeks.

Mid April through early June is when I do the majority of burning. Winds settle down, humidity is higher, less issues with jumps, and it promotes a more desirable herbaceous response.

Depends on fuel load and species composition. I’ve been burning mature hardwood stands in growing season for years with very little damage. Soil moisture is a big factor.
