    Description

    Proposed construction in Missouri of pulpmills using oak cordwood should result in a greater demand for pole-size oak trees, thus making needed thinnings feasible in young oak stands. According to the 1958 forest survey, poletimber stands (which are mainly oak) occupy 39 percent of the commercial forest area of the eastern Ozakrs, more than any other size class. More intensive management of the large areas of oak-hickory poletimber stands will be possible as markets improve. Recent experimental thinnings in young, even-aged oak stands cut to several stocking levels provide data on possible cordwood yields.
