Regenerating oak is more of a process than an event. The probability of replacing an existing oak forest with a new one by just cutting it down and letting it grow back is zero or unacceptably low. It takes proper planning and a series of sequenced silvicultural treatments, including prescribed fire, to have any chance of restoring an existing oak forest.
The North Carolina Tree Farm Program will hold a Restoring Upland Oak Forests webinar on March 9th at Noon EST
This webinar, presented by David Halley of True North Forest Management Services will explain how to use a modified oak shelterwood system to restore upland oak and describe the prerequisites and necessary steps for success.
This webinar is an introduction to a more intense two-day Restoring Upland Oak Forests field training that the N.C. Tree Farm Program will offer in September.
