From the text ... 'Prescribed fire has long been a silvicultural tool in the Southeast. On the coastal plains of South Carolina prescription fires have been used to maintain a fire subclimax of pine by keeping fire intolerant hardwoods killed back. Summer fires are tremendous aids for controlling these undesirable species (2). Many papers have been written on the subject. To achieve maximum kill, summer fires are required. Just as important to the forest economy is the use of fire for reducing naturally occurring fuel hazards. Annual needle cast and vegetative growth develop tremendous weights due to the lush growth in the low areas with high water tables.'
