Planting Northern Red Oak in the Missouri Ozarks: A Prescription
Abstract:A 4-step prescription for planting northern red oak is presented that calls for: (1) controlling undesirable woody understory vegetation with a herbicide applied before planting; (2) creating a medium density shelterwood; (3) under-planting large-diameter nursery stock with clipped tops; and (4) removing the shelter-wood 3 growing seasons after planting. By applying this prescription, 1/3, to ½ of planted trees can be expected to be successfully established 2 years after the shelter-wood is removed. North. J. Appl. For. 3:66-68, June 1986.
