Description: Survival of striped maple (Acer pensylvanicum L.) was assessed after three spring prescribed fires in Pennsylvania mixed oak (Quercus spp.) stands. Portions of two stands were prescribe-burned in spring 2002 and the part of a third in spring 2004. Following the fires, each stand was divided into burned and unburned units. Striped maple sapling counts were done one and three growing seasons after the fires in both units of each stand to determine whether the fires had reduced the density of stems. In all stands, fire initially reduced density of striped maple by 25 to 50 percent. Delayed mortality pushed this rate to over 90 percent in two of the stands. These data suggest that prescribed fire appears to be a viable means of controlling striped maple in mixed oak forests.
