  • Setting & Research

    Infrastructure in R6 so far includes two 15-m diameter vegetation plots, one in a hickory grove that was likely planted in the mid-1800s, one in a 70+ year old pine forest that covers a former cotton field. We plan to core all the trees in these plots to determine stand age. The research area includes all of Rose Hill Plantation State Historic Site (17.8 ha), part of the South Carolina State Parks system, as well as surrounding areas of the Sumter National Forest (12.1 ha).
