Survival of northern red oak acorns after fall burning



Survival of northern red oak acorns after fall burning



Research Paper Northeastern Forest Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service ( NE-678): i + 5 pp.



Survival of recently fallen northern red oak (Quercus rubra) acorns after exposure to a cool autumn burn was evaluated in northwestern Pennsylvania. Although no acorns were consumed by the fire, some were charred. Between 40 and 49% of the acorns in the litter were destroyed. The fire was not hot enough to kill Curculio larvae within the acorns.
