    Description

    An appraisal of stocking in even-aged upland oak stands is a prerequisite for determining the cultural needs of a given stand. Most oak stands have sufficient stocking to utilize the site, but are deficient in high-quality trees. Thinning such stands offers a good opportunity to upgrade the relative quality of the growing stock and enhance the growth and yield potential. The physical yields of timber products from thinning are greatest when thinning is begun at an early age. Thinnings should be made from below at 10- to 15-year intervals.
