Prescribed Fire and Thinning Tree Recruitment Patterns Central Hardwood Forests

Second-growth oak forests in the central hardwoods region are considered compositionally unstable in the absence of large-scale disturbances.
While prescribed burning and mechanical thinning treatments are potential options for managing succession in mixed-oak forests, few studies have adequately studied tree successional patterns in mature stands following application of these anthropogenic disturbances.
