    Many land managers are attempting to reforest riparian corridors in the Missouri Ozarks. The most common restoration technique is planting bare-root seedlings, which has often had poor or mixed success. Some have suggested that using natural regeneration in combination with vegetation management may better fit management objectives and prove more cost effective. We designed an experiment to examine natural hardwood regeneration in old-field riparian corridors of the Missouri Ozarks using five vegetation management treatments replicated at three sites.
