Abstract

We evaluated the stump sprouting potential of white oak, black oak, and scarlet oak in relation to tree age, stem diameter, and overstory density in Ozark forests managed by even-aged and uneven-aged silvicultural systems. In eastern North America, few studies have evaluated the influence of a forest canopy on the potential of hardwood stumps to sprout and contribute to regeneration. The Missouri Ozark Forest Ecosystem Project (MOFEP) gave us an opportunity to study oak stump sprouting in relation to tree characteristics and residual overstory density resulting from various regeneration methods.
