    Description

    Forty-five hundred acorns of Nuttall oak (Quercus nuttallii Palmer) were either machine or manually sown at 2-, 4-, or 6-inch depths in a 20-acre, intensively site-prepared clearing within the Delta Experimental Forest located near Stoneville, Mississippi. Field germination averaged 36 percent; no significant differences in germination appeared among seeding methods or sowing depths. After 11 years, two-thirds of the Nuttall oaks, or 551 per acre, were free-to-grow: they averaged 2.1 inches dbh and 16.7 feet tall.
