Description: A test of group-selection and single-tree selection cutting methods was installed in 80-year-old even-aged oak-hickory stands in the Boston Mountains of northern Arkansas. Twenty-four 11-ac study plots were installed in well stocked stands representing north or east and south or west aspects. Stands between group openings were cut to residual basal areas of 65 and 85 ft² using free thinning or structural control. This paper describes (1) the effect of aspect on preharvest stand structure and species composition, (2) preharvest reproduction composition, and (3) the effect of cutting method and density treatments on residual stand structure. The implications of existing stand structure and cutting method efficacy are also discussed.
