about this item

Eastern oak forests, one of the largest deciduous forest complexes in the world, are highly prized for their aesthetics, biodiversity, ecological services, and economic productivity. Appropriate management is required due to ecological stressors, but many landowners are not familiar with the practical steps to maintain viability or to achieve specific goals. This book is the definitive practical guide for anyone interested in improved stewardship of eastern oak forest ecosystems. Specific chapters include wildlife, silvics, and use of prescribed fire, use of herbicides, artificial regeneration, natural regeneration, as well as woodland, savannah management, and bottomland oak management.
