DescriptionThe artificial regeneration of red oak by planting or direct seeding is an important method for restoring oak in ecosystems where it has been lost as a result of past management practices. Planting and direct seeding can also be used to supplement natural oak regeneration and to ensure that sufficient oak reproduction is in place when overstories are removed through timber harvests. There has been a substantial amount of research conducted on the nursery production of barefoot and container-grown red oak and the direct seeding of oaks throughout eastern North America. This paper is a review and synthesis of existing information. Recommendations on seed collection, nursery cultural practices, stock quality and direct seeding techniques are presented.
