    Description

    Effective and consistent success with artificial regeneration of northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) has been achieved on many sites using 1-0 graded seedlings produced with the nursery protocol developed by the USDA Forest Service at the Institute of Tree Root Biology in cooperation with the Georgia Forestry Commission. Small northern red oak (NRO) plantings of one or two acres have demonstrated that artificial regeneration can play a vital role in restoring this species in stands where it has been difficult to establish NRO naturally for different reasons.
