Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: A study was conducted in northern Pennsylvania to determine whether predation by small mammals and insects is related to the size of red oak acorns. Three sizes of acorns were used aiong with two planting techniques and three levels of overstory shading. Three-year results indicated that acorn size is not a factor in mammal and insect predation. Acorn size did not affect 3-year survival. Although 3-year total height growth was statisticaliy different after 3 years, the differences were too small for practical use.

Keywords: Northern red oak, predation, germination, seed crops
