Description: Growth and development of saplings of four-oak (Quercus spp.) species planted at five spacings in a minor stream bottom in southeast Arkansas showed significant differences among species and spacings. Spacing affected all tree size and biomass variables except survival. Yater oak (Q. nigra L.) developed most rapidly; swamp chestnut oak (Q. michauxii Nutt.) most slowly. Diameters and heights, averaged over all spacings, ranged from 4.0 inches d.b.h. and 26.7 feet height for water oak to 2.0 inches and 13.9 feet in swamp chestnut oak. Above ground biomass ranged from 26.1 tons per acre for water oak to 7.4 tons in swamp chestnut oak. If only potential crop trees are considered, there was a 20-25 percent increase in growth over average of all trees.
Keywords: Nuttall oak, sugarberry
