Title: Site Index Predictions for Red Oaks and White Oak in the Boston Mountains of Arkansas

Author: Graney, D.L.;

Date: 1977

Source: Res. Pap. SO-139. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 9 p.

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: The relationship of soil and topography to site indices of northern red (Quercus rubra L. ), black (Q. uelutina Lam.) and white (Q. alba L.) oaks in the Boston Mountains indicates that white oaks should be favored for management on the finer-textured soils and on good south and west slope sites. Both red oaks and white oak could be managed on north- and east-facing sites. Neither species group, however, is recommended for the loamy sandstone soils of the region.

Keywords: Quercus rubra L., Q. velutina Lam., Q. alba L., aspect, slope shape, slope gradient
