DescriptionPlant community development was observed for 10 years after a fire had top-killed most trees in a southeastern Missouri oak-hickory forest stand. The forest was re-established by sprouts. Production of herbaceous plants and other potential wildlife food was abundant for 4 years before decreasing to a stable preburn condition.
