Oaks are among the slowest growing species and require partial light conditions (intermediate light tolerance) to prosper. Because they are such slow-growers, they need a head start as advance reproduction and to compete with faster-growing species.
Southern Regional Extension Forestry will hold a Creating Open Woodlands to Promote Regeneration & Development of White Oak webinar on February 28th at 1 pm EST
In this webinar, Wayne Clatterbuck from University of Tennessee Extension will discuss management practices that can create the conditions that promote development and regeneration of White Oak. Oaks grow slowly and can be outcompeted by faster growing species, but a few management practices can make a difference.
Stands require frequent disturbances to maintain those intermediate light conditions for oak growth. There are several practices that are available to encourage growth of oaks in these intermediate light conditions and discourage other species.
