Title: The Regeneration of Group Selection Openings in Southern Indiana

Author: Weigel, Dale R.;

Date: 1994

Source: Technical Brief No. 3. St. Paul, MN. U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station.

Publication Series: Technical Bulletin

Description: The group selection method combines some of the advantages of even-aged silvicultural methods with those of uneven-aged methods. The method maintains a fairly continuous tree canopy, which provides a more natural appearance to the forest than does any even-aged method. By creating small canopy openings, it also provides the light necessary for the growth of species that are shade intolerant or only moderately shade tolerant such as the oaks. However, there is little information on the application of the method in the Central Hardwood Region. This report describes the results of a research study on regeneration of group selection openings in south central Indiana.

Keywords: Silviculture, central hardwoods, oak regeneration.
