Blackjack Oak in the Missouri Ozarks
Abstract:Blackjack oak has been considered a problem species in the Missouri Ozarks, where it is rather abundant in some stands. The merchantability of its products is low and does not seem likely to increase in the near future. In this article the author points out that it has definite silvical values, that most blackjack oak stands have what is believed to be an adequate stocking of trees of the more desirable species, and that these more desirable trees are likely to remain in the stand to maturity.
