Across a region encompassing New England, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, 3.0 of 18.9 million acres of oak forests are poorly stocked from high-grading, disease and insect outbreaks, severe weather, and poor regeneration. Because stocking is highly variable within these stands, a single prescription for the entire stand can be counter-productive by over- or under-treating some areas. The promising preliminary results of adapting a micro-stand (1/10 ac) approach developed in Quebec to our oak forests will be detailed along with the impacts of deer browsing and invasive shrubs on achieving competitive forest regeneration.
