Data report from unmanaged well-stocked forest upland stands in Southern Illinois: file report, stand objectives study by Minckler, Leon Sherwood, ; United States. Forest Service; Central States Forest Experiment Station (Columbus, Ohio)Pages: well-stocked, managed, upland hardw ood stands where various species of white oak, red oak, and black oa k are the principal components.

Site index ratings for upland oaks on adapted soils are shown in Section II of the technical guide. Information is shown in these tables for site clas 60, 70, and File Size: KB. Goals / Objectives Research under this problem pertains to stands composed of upland hardwoods, mixed pine-hardwood, and pines, and concentrates in two broad areas--immature stands and mature stands.

With respect to immature stands, research emphasizes stand developmental dynamics, and how those dynamics can be altered under the influence of generally-accepted intermediate treatments.

Carmichael and Guynn () report slightly higher numbers for another study in South Carolina.

The unit has good stand density and tree distribution. It currently has a basal area of 97 sq. ft./ac. Basal area, a measure of stand density, is the sum of the cross-sectional area of all trees [measured at breast height, ’] expressed as a per-acre amount.

Ideal basal areafor this forest. Six study areas were established in 80–year-old upland oak stands on average sites to compare stand and individual tree growth response following two active treatments (B-level thinning.


The Illinois Forestry Association is a grass-roots organization with a diverse membership of concerned citizens, forest landowners, farmers, small acreage owners, forestry and natural resources professionals, arborists, community foresters, professors, administrators, urban professionals, wood-using business owners, and retirees with grandchildren.

Upland forests occur throughout Illinois. They are classified according to soil moisture. They range from xeric (extremely dry) through mesic (moderate soil moisture) to wet-mesic (wet, but not flooded soil conditions). Xeric upland forest occurs mainly in the Shawnee Hills in southern Illinois on sites where the soils are even thinner than those of barrens.
