    Description

    The decision to artificially regenerate oak must be predicated on some basis. After completing an assessment of the potential to regenerate oak naturally, we decided our stands might benefit from supplemental oak plantings. The primary objective of this study was to couple outplanting of northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) with applied silviculture prescriptions in north Alabama. Outplanting light conditions were quantified and seedling survival, growth, and photosynthetic light response curves were developed.
