Description: The current supply of oak (Quercus spp.) in eastern forests appears abundant. Knight and Hilmon (1978) report a 42 percent increase in total oak sawtimber between 1952 and 1977. In 1977, board-foot growth (Int. 1/4") was slightly less and cubic-foot growth slightly more than twice the amount of annual removals. But the long term outlook for oak is not so bright. Researchers throughout the East are finding that many new hardwood stands contain much less oak than those now being harvested (Johnson and Krinard 1976, McGee and Hooper 1975, Sander 1977).
