Hardwood Density and Species Composition in Bottomland Areas Treated for Regeneration
Abstract:Seedling and sapling density of high- and low-commercial species varied from 994 to 2,792/acre on regenerated areas, age three to eight years, on the Delta National Forest, Mississippi. The highest densities were in the oldest regenerated stands, on low flat sites and on areas that had been hand-injected. Most seedlings and saplings were not suppressed by vines and the number growing in the open increased with age. The most abundant species were green ash, water hickory, overcup oak, sugarberry, Nuttall oak, and persimmon. The highest densities of subcommercial species were on sheared areas.
