Ecology and Management of Northern Red Oak in New England

Download Resource


Northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.) is one of the highest-valued species in New England for both timber production and wildlife amenities. However, the species is declining due to regeneration difficulties, dwindling farmland abandonment, and losses from deer browsing. Much of the available research information is from regions outside of New England, and may not apply. This publication is an attempt to assemble and evaluate information on red oak ecology, management, and habitat especially applicable to New England.
