DescriptionTechnology for obtaining natural oak regeneration on low quality upland sites, e.g. site indices of 60-65 or less, was developed in the Central Statesregion and has been successfully applied throughout the eastern United States (Sanderand Graney 1993, Clark 1993, Sander 1972). Modification of this technology for use on high quality mesic sites, productive coves and bottomlands generally has not been successful, and alternative tech- nology for regeneration on high qualitysites needs to be developed (Clark 1993). On these better sites, competition from faster growing tree species and other vegetative components develop more rapidly than oak, regardless of species, when adequate sunlight reaches the forest floor.
