Description: The successful regeneration of oak-dominated stands is an issue of concern for foresters today. The size of the root system is directly related to the rate of growth following release and therefore to the chances of establishment of regrowth. The size of the root system is difficult to measure without destructive sampling, but it may be assessed through modeling. The objectives of this study were to test if root biomass of white oak (Quercus alba L.) could be predicted from aboveground measurements of diameter and/or height and to determine if disturbance history affected this prediction.
