DescriptionThis study was conducted at the University of Kentucky's Robinson Forest located in Breathitt, Knott, and Perry counties in eastern Kentucky. Three treatments including two levels of croptree release, leaving 20 and 34 crop trees per acre, and a control treatment were replicated 4 times and randomly distributed among l.2 white oak (Quercus alba L.) stands. Details of the plot layout, determination of treatment levels, and results including treatment costs, volume removed, and three-year crop tree growth response were reported. This report focuses on residual stand damage from the two crop tree release treatments.
