    Description

    Northern red oak occurs in limited amounts with a mixture of softwoods on the shallow soils at upper elevations in northern New England. These stands are important for wildlife habitat and forest diversity as well as a modest amount of timber harvesting. Little experience or research is available on how to regenerate upper-elevation oak. However, an examination of a 35-year-old clearcut on an upper slope of the Bartlett Experimental Forest reveals successful oak regeneration. We describe the species mix and tree sizes in the clearcut stand, the species composition and advanced oak regeneration in the adjacent uncut portion of the stand, and suggest methods for regenerating upper-elevation oak.
