DescriptionDeveloping a silvicultural prescription to convert an even-aged or unmanaged oak stand to an uneven-aged structure depends in large part on the length of time the existing overstory will live. Four conversion prescriptions, representing three initial stand conditions, are presented. Each prescription partitions the cut of the original overstory differently in time and space depending on the interval between stand entries and the desired allocation of growing space among the newly developing age classes.
