Silvicultural Opportunities Ten Years After Clearcutting Central Hardwoods
Abstract:Natural reproduction in central hardwoods 8 to 13 years after clearcutting is assessed for stands in southern Illinois. Abundant reproduction for management of valuable hardwoods is present on all sites. There are more valuable hardwood stems per acre on the dry sites, with smaller average dbh, than on the mesic sites. Better oak reproduction is found on the dry sites. There are an average of 202 dominant or codominant oak stems per acre on the dry sites compared to 42 on the mesic sites. Valuable timber species reproduction can provide most of the crop trees and trainers; TSI will generally be required on mesic and dry sites. North J Appl For 5 22-25, March 1988
