Regeneration in Small and Large Sawtimber Sweetgum-Red Oak Stands Following Selection and Seed Tree Harvest: 23-Year Results
Abstract:Whether regenerated by a seed tree or a selection cut, two sweetgum-red oak stands increased or maintained their pretreatment sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) component while the pretreatment red oak (Quercus falcata var. pagodifolia, Q. nigra, and Q. phellos) component was maintained or decreased. Species composition of regeneration was similar in both types of cut. Better development and higher percent of area with desirable regeneration occurred in the seed tree method. Seed trees were not needed for regeneration.
