Description: In the past decade, the use of prescribed fire in the mixed-oak forests of the eastern United States has markedly increased to help overcome the chronic lack of abundant, vigorous oak regeneration (Yaussy 2000). However, pre- scribed burns implemented under inappropriate circum- stances can result in failure to establish oak regeneration and/or loss of existing oak reproduction. To correctly use fire to promote regeneration of mixed-oak forests, stand developmental dynamics (Oliver and Larson 1990) and the oak regeneration process (Sander and others 1984) must be considered simultaneously.
