    Description

    Planting oaks in abandoned agricultural fields and pastures in the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley has received much attention in the past 20 years. A common afforestation prescription is to plant oaks on a 12- x 12-ft spacing. Recently, concern has been expressed about planting 302 oaks per acre and the resulting effects of early intra-specific competition following canopy closure. Recommendations have included planting a greater number of species in intimate mixtures, but little is known about how such stands will develop.
