Description: Seed trees left at two sites did not appear to influence the establishment or development of reproduction . Seed trees were mainly sweetgum and red oaks. Most reproduction was from sprouting of the stumps and roots of cut trees or from advanced seedlings present in the understory at the time of cutting. Eighteen years after cutting, dominant trees of the reproduction were from 6 to 10 inches d.b.h. and from 55 to 65 feet tall. At the two sites, volumes of trees>1.0 inch d.b.h. averaged 1,544 and 1,767 cubic feet per acre.
Keywords: Natural regeneration, sprouting, Liquidambar styraciflua, Quercus falcata var. pagodaefolia, Quercus nigra.
