DescriptionHarvesting practices in the southern Appalachians have been moving towards partial harvests, which leave some desired species as residuals after an initial harvest. This study investigated differences among two partial harvest treatments and a clearcut on oak stump sprouting in seven southern Appalachian hardwood stands. The sites were in southwest Virginia and east central West Virginia. The three silvicultural treatments consisted of a leave-tree (5 m
per ha), a shelterwood (12 to 14 m2 per ha), and a silvicultural clearcut. Three permanent plots were randomly located in each treatment, inventoried and tagged prior to harvest.
