Description: To restore red-cockaded woodpecker habitat managers must reduce hardwoods while maintaining native ground cover. Fire, chemical, and mechanical methods are used alone or in combination to reduce oaks. Previous studies have reported selected single treatment effects (e.g., Outcalt and Lewis 1990, Robbins and Myers 1992, Glitzenstein et al. 1995, Provencher et al. 2001); however, no studies occurred in the range of northern wiregrass (Aristida stricta) and few evaluated treatment interactions (Brockway and Outcalt 2000). We conducted a study to determine the short-term effects of season of chopping and burning, and potential interaction, on turkey oak (Quercus laevis) and wiregrass.
