    Description

    Upland oaks can be established by seeding or planting, but additional experience is needed before these methods become economical alternatives to natural regeneration. Recently forested sites are generally more favorable than abandoned fields. Lack of repellents to protect acorns from animals severely limits direct seeding, but oaks can be planted readily by conventional methods and will survive well on suitable sites. They require ample sunlight for best growth, and competing vegetation must be controlled. At best, however, early height growth is discouragingly slow. Advances in cultural methods and the development of genetically improved stock seem essential to make artificial regeneration practical.
