    Description

    In the cutover pinelands of south Florida, hammocks of evergreen forests are oases of wildlife habitat, but they are too widely scattered to be effective. The artificial establishment of hammocks in the flatwoods has potential for enhancing forest wildlife. To dqrmmeminimum requirements for the establishment of native oaks in the flatwoods, acomparisonwas made between live oak (Quercus virginiana Mill.) and laurel oak (Q. laurifolis Michx.). Results indicate that live oak is superior to laurel oak, that bedding is necessary to establish oaks, and that protection from grazing for a few years is desirable for the best results.
