Description: In oak-dominated plant communities and in other communities where oaks are important, the keys to natural regeneration of upland oak components are (1) to ensure presence of competitive regeneration sources, and (2) to provide timely, sufficient release of these sources. Regeneration sources vary significantly among different types of plant communities and disturbance regimes. Options for timely, sufficient release of oak regeneration sources include stand structures associated with even-aged, two-aged, and uneven-aged silvicultural systems. I discuss the nature and management implications of these variations, the regeneration options, and stress the importance of evaluating oak regeneration potential.
