    Description

    The effects of thinning Emory oak (Quercus emoryi) coppice on transpiration have been estimated by the heat-pulse velocity (HPV) method. Rootstocks of trees harvested for fuelwood were thinned to one, two, or three dominant stump-sprouts or left as unthinned controls. Differences in transpiration rates of the thinned coppice were found for each treatment and the control. Earlier research has also shown that thinning of Emory oak stumpsprouts influences the growth and volume of the residual coppice and its value for wildlife habitats. Therefore, a decision matrix is presented to help in the management of thinned Emory oak coppice for optimal combinations of water, wood, and wildlife benefits.
