DescriptionPlanting experiments have been conducted for the past 10 years in the scrub oak type at the Delaware-Lehigh Experimental Forest in eastern Pennsylvania. The object of these experiments is to find a practical method of establishing a high forest of greater value than the area's present cover. In the course of these studies it was suggested that soil moisture might be a limiting factor in seedling survival and growth; so a study was made to determine soil-moisture conditions under the components of the scrub oak stand.
