Description: The shelterwood-burn technique is a novel method for regenerating oak-dominated stands on some upland sites while simultaneously minimizing undesirable hardwood intrusion with prescribed fire. Management options available within an oak shelterwood-burn regime will create variably structured habitats that may potentially harbor avian communities of mature forest and early successional species (canopy retention); grove-woodland species (post-harvest prescribed burn) or shrubland species (total harvest).
