Description: When regenerating oak or mixed-hardwood forests in southern Indiana, oak (Quercus spp.) stump sprouts are vital to sustaining their presence and long-term dominance. In 1987, a study began in the Hoosier National Forest in southern Indiana. The study goal was to predict the sprouting potential and dominance probability of oaks. Before clearcut harvesting, we sampled 2,188 trees of five oak species—white oak, chestnut oak, black oak, scarlet oak, and northern red oak. Measurements were taken before and 1, 5, and 25 years after clearcut harvesting. We used logistic regression to develop two preharvest predictive models and four postharvest models for dominance probabilities of the five species 25 years after harvest.
