Description: Eighty overtopped white oaks were felled in winter of 1976-l 977, and overtopping hardwoods were removed from 40 of the stumps. During the next growing season, 62 of the stumps produced a total of 1086 sprouts. The removal of the overtopping hardwoods had little effect on whether or not a stump sprouted or on numbers or height of the sprouts. Trees over 80 years of age or over 8 inches in d.b.h. produced few or no sprouts. The tallest sprout on each stump averaged 2.5 feet. Almost all sprouts grew from below the ground line on the stump.
