Predicting 25th-Year Diameters of Thinned Stump Sprouts of Northern Red Oak
Abstract:Simulated estimates of 25th-year diameters are given for northern red oak (Quercus rubra) stump sprouts in southwestern Wisconsin. The model shows that diameters of individual stems can be maximized by early clump thinning to one stem. Specific gains will depend on crop stem diameters, age, relative basal area (ratio of individual stem to total clump basal area) after thinning, and site quality.

- The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
