Direct seeded cherrybark oaks quercus falcata var pagodifolia and shumard oaks quercus shumardii battle natural regeneration through 10 years

Direct seeded cherrybark oaks quercus falcata var pagodifolia and shumard oaks quercus shumardii battle natural regeneration through 10 years

Southern Journal of Applied Forestry 8(4): 226-231

Acorns of Shumard (Q. shumardii Buckl.) and cherrybark (Q. falcata var. pagodifolia Ell.) oaks were direct seeded in a 3-acre opening created by cutting and removing all trees .gtoreq. 1.0 in. dbh [diameter, breast height] from a forest in the silty uplands. Field germination of winter-sown acorns was 42% for cherrybark and 55% for Shumard, about twice that of spring-sown acorns. After 10 yr, average height of codominant trees was 23.6 ft for Shumard and 27.0 ft. for cherrybark; average dbh was 1.5 in. for both species. Dominants and codominants in the competing natural stand averaged 40 ft tall and 3.5 in. dbh. Only 5% of the seed spots had oak in a free-to-grow position; most codominant oaks were on higher, drier sites where competition was less severe. On better sites a number of intermediate oaks are still developing, but their future is yet to be determined.
