Description: Correct timing of the first thinning in mixed oak stands depends largely on the composition and condition of the stands and on available markets for small wood products. Delaying first thinnings in high-quality seedling-origin stands until a long, straight, clear bole has developed is of primary importance in assuring high quality of the final crop trees. However, many of our present stands, particularly those of sprout origin, need improvement work; and improvement cuttings or thinnings should be started as soon as a commercial operation is possible. Growth response in diameter after thinning is usually a gradual process. Older oaks seldom show spectacular changes in diameter growth rate after release.
