DescriptionPlanting experiments during the past 7 years on the Dilldown Unit of the Delaware-Lehigh Experimental Forest in Pennsylvania and elsewhere in the scrub oak type have been aimed at finding methods for converting the scrub cover to more valuable timber types at least cost. Some sort of site preparation has been recognized from the beginning as essential to successful planting on much of the scrub oak land.
