    regeneration is an economically viable alternative option (Fig. 1). Shortleaf pine was once a major pine species across the eastern US with both economic and biologic importance. Historical accounts state that pure stands of shortleaf pine were common in Arkansas, east Texas, northern Louisiana, and Mississippi. pine trees. After Euro -American settle - ment, heavy livestockgrazing,firesup-pression, logging disturbances, and cli - matic events favored dense ponderosa pine regeneration, and the open park-lands closed. Various authors (Covington and Moore a, b; Kolb et al. ) have described unhealthy char-acteristics of the postsettlement pon-.

    Where is East Texas' oldest pine tree? In a land with billions of pines, that's a tough question to answer. But in San Jacinto County, the Thergood pine tree--named for a pioneer who saved it from a woodsman's ax -- certainly qualifies as a candidate for the title. Now more than years old, the Thergood pine is still growing and bearing pine cones. Research Report No. 18, Fusiform Rust Occurrence in East Texas Pine Plantations, , J. David Lenhart and Terry L.
