DescriptionRed oak reproduction was surveyed in openings of two selectively cut bottomland hardwood stands. Seven years after a selection-cut only 3 percent of the seedling were more than 12 inches tall. Regression analysis showed that distance, from sample trees, diameter of sample tree, diameter of sample tree squared, and length of opening transect had a significant effect upon number of red oak seedlings. Abundant reproduction is established but is not developing satisfactorily, and larger openings appear necessary if these species are to be managed under the selection method.
