DescriptionMixed shortleaf pine-upland oak stands allow flexibility in type and timing of regeneration, release, and harvesting treatments for managers; provide unique wildlife and herbaceous community niches; and increase visual diversity. Most of the research to date focused on growing pure pine or oak stands, with little research on today's need to grow pine-oak mixtures. Despite this lack of information, resourceful foresters are using various regeneration treatments in even- and uneven-aged stands to increase the density of shortleaf pine among oaks. In this paper, we discuss past and current regeneration treatments applied by Missouri Department of Conversation and USDA Forest Service foresters.
