    Managers in Missouri often want to manage forests to retain oak in the future. Oaks are valuable for timber and many wildlife species depend on acorns. Large advance reproduction and stump sprouts are the most competitive sources of regeneration. It is well known that oak stump sprouts contribute to future stands in even-age clearcuts in the Missouri Ozarks, but there is a lack of long term data. There is little known about survival and growth of oak sprouts in small uneven-age group openings or in singletree selection harvests. The Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP) provided a good opportunity to study the growth and survival of white oak, black oak and scarlet oak stump sprouts from these three different management options.
