    Description

    Managers are increasingly moving toward an ecosystem-based, multiple-use approach in managing Emory oak woodlands in the Southwestern United States. Often of particular interest is managing the coppice that evolves from earlier fuelwood harvesting activities. Emory oak (Quercus emoryi) is a prolific sprouting species and, as a consequence, post-harvesting stands can support copious coppice on the cut rootstocks. Thinning the coppice to obtain a desired density of multiple benefits is one management option. A decision matrix based on resource proxies derived from earlier studies has been developed to assist managers in prescribing coppice thinning treatments to optimize one or more resource benefits.
