Title: Hardwood Sprout Development on Cleared Sites

Author: Woods, Frank W.; Cassady, John T.; Grano, Charles X; Johnson, Robert L.;

Date: 1961

Source: Occasional Paper SO-OP-186. USDA-Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 13 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication (MISC)

Description: Clearing forest land of undesirable vegetation, with a view to obtaining desirable trees, is becoming increasingly common in the South. Bulldozers and other heavy equipment are generally used in such efforts. Success is measured largely by the degree to which recovery of the unwanted plants is prevented or slowed. This Occasional Paper contains three articles on the general topic of site-clearing. The first describes the response of scrub oaks cut and recut at varying intervals; the aim of the study was to secure information on the timing of stand-conversion operations in the sandhills of western Florida. The second article deals with the speed of hardwood resprouting in the understory of a pine forest in southern Arkansas. The third briefly describes a bulldozing operation in the Mississippi Delta, where the intention was to encourage hardwoods of better species and quality than those already present
