Description: Abstract - Monitoring the health of reserve hardwood trees is being performed as part of the Ecosystem Management Research Project on the Ouachita and Ozark National Forests in Arkansas. A suite of crown variables (diameter, live crown ratio, density, dieback, and foliage transparency) was used to detect significant changes in reserve tree health over time. While treatments had some effect on crown variables over time, seasonal climatic conditions (e.g. acute drought) may have had a greater effect. It was generally apparent that for the most intensive treatments, crown variables worsened more over time compared to less intensive treatments. Results will provide information about the success of retaining such trees and provide guidelines for selecting reserve trees in future operational harvests.
