Survival and Growth of Nuttall Oak Seedlings Following Selection Cutting--28-Year Remeasurement
Abstract:A Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttallii Palmer) seedling stand that averaged 138,000 trees/ac 1 year after establishment from the 1957 seed crop was reduced to 708 trees/ac after 28 years where seedling release consisted of a one-time selection cut. None of the dominant/codominant trees at age 28 were oak, and only 20% of the plots had oaks of intermediate crown class. The regenerated stand will apparently become ash-sugarberry to replace the original stand that was two-thirds oak. South. J. Appl. For. 13(1):43-46.
