Description: Pole sized white oaks increase in volume growth following release from overtopping trees, but the response varies by size, age and appearance of the oaks. Significant increases in epicormic sprouting, height loss by some released trees, and highly variable stem volume growth make overtopped white oak a very questionable source of future crop trees. If overtopped trees are cut, those under 8 inches dbh and less than 80 years of age produce vigorous stump sprouts and provide a source of natural regeneration.
