    Description

    Effective oak silvicultural treatments allow light to reach the forest floor with sufficient intensity and duration to enable establishment, growth, and development of preferred species. Although it is intuitive that increases in light will accompany various levels of canopy removal, specific amounts and the distribution of light resulting from different silvicultural treatments have not been precisely determined. Our objectives were to document the amounts and distribution of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) in stands receiving alternative silvicultural treatments.
