Abstract:
In this long-term project funded by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Forestry, we are following the regeneration process in over 50 mixed-oak forest stands. Results to date include a classification of stands by understory vegetation conditions, identification of discrete pathways of stand development based upon initial conditions, development of the characteristic size-density relationship for early stand growth, and development of oak regeneration guidelines applicable to this region. Use Index.htm to spring webpage with data, analysis, and maps.
