Description: Since 1854 the Menominee Tribal people have practiced some level of forest management on their lands. In April of 2000, Menominee Tribal Enterprises (MTE) forestry staff along with federal, state, and university researchers began a comprehensive study of value in northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.). One of the objectives of this study was to relate tree characteristics to lumber yield and grade, and total tree value of mature and old growth northern red oak. During winter 2001, 69 northern red oak (tree grade 1) study trees were identified and harvested from three habitat types on Menominee Tribal lands. Sample trees averaged 111 years old (82 to 181 years) and 22 inches in d.b.h. (14 to 33 inches). Results of the mill yield study showed that almost 70 percent of the value of the tree grade 1 northern red oak trees was in the first two logs. Approximately 40 percent of the tree grade 1 logs were veneer quality. Almost one- third of the veneer logs came from 20- to 24-inches diameter trees. Over one-half (53 percent) of the total veneer value came from butt logs. The total value of all products derived from the northern red oak grade 1 trees increased with age and diameter.
