Plantings on open site of yaupon seedlings produced 1,580 pounds of browse and 200 pounds per acre of fruit in the fourth year. This was the equivalent of 166 acres of production from yaupon planted under pines with cattle and 57 acres of ungrazed pine range. Dwarf live oaks produced acorns the third year in the open and none for five years in forest sites. Therefore, any planting of these two species for wildlife should be made in clearings managed for the purpose.
