Height Growth of New Oak Sprouts Depends on Size of Advance Reproduction
Abstract:The early height growth of new oak sprouts present after clearcutting in southeastern Ohio depends upon the size of the old advance reproduction from which they originate. Sprouts from the largest stems of advance reproduction grew the fastest, but these large stems also produced the most sprouts. Stems less than 0.5 inch in diameter at the ground line produced the most single sprouts, but these sprouts did not grow fast enough to keep pace with the rest of the stand. Stems between 0.5 and 1.0 inch in diameter produced sprouts that attained at least a codominant position in the new stand. They also produced fewer sprouts per stem than those over 1.0 inch.
