Description: Early regeneration success of upland oaks (Quercus spp. L.) was compared for three regeneration cutting treatments in the Sandstone Mountain Region of northern Alabama. Two 4-acre replications each of block dearcutting, strip cutting, and deferment cutting were established on north-facing slopes. The three harvesting treatments were applied in midsummer. Regeneration subplots were reinventoried in both the first and second autumns following harvest. Major oaks present were chestnut oak (Q. prinus L.), white oak (Q. alba L.). and northern red oak (Q. rubra L.). Milacre plot stocking of oak reproduction after the second season was related to advance reproduction stocking, topographic position, cutting treatment, harvesting damage, and cover of logging slash. Both small advance reproduction (less than 1 ft tall) and post-harvest germination contributed substantially to the post-harvest stocking of oaks.
