Predicting Post-Harvest Performance of Advance Red Oak Reproduction in the Southern Appalachians
Abstract:Models are presented for predicting: (1) height growth of red oak advance reproduction after clearcutting, and (2) the probability of stems becoming dominants or codominants in new stands as a function of preharvest size of advance reproduction and site quality. The second model permits silviculturists to predict, prior to harvest, the contribution to a new stand of an existing population of advance red oak reproduction. For. Sci. 36(4):908-916.
