Annual shoot elongation during the first 3 and 5 years of growth was investigated in two age classes of scarlet oak (Quercus coccinea Muenchh.) sprout clumps in clearcut stands in the upper Piedmont of South Carolina. Number of recurrent flushes and height increments declined annually with increasing sprout age. Within any given year, average length of each consecutive flush decreased. Annual height increments of sprouts with two or more flushes were greater than those of sprouts with one flush. Forest Sci. 31:725-730.
