Abstract

The author reports a baseline forest survey of Central and West Oklahoma to obtain tree and stand growth rates for harvest sustainability, standing volume estimates for biomass assessments, and stand structure to provide other pertinent data for exploring management options. This report focused on the Quercus stellata-Quercus marilandica forest type in the Cross Timbers region at the western fringe of upland tree growth. Quercus stellata diameter growth was also analyzed to determine if there was any relationship among the rate of diameter growth, tree size, and stand basal area. The FIA sample design was placed on Soil Conservation Service (SCS)[National Conservation Research Service [NCRS] plots in cooperation with the SCS [NCRS] and the Oklahoma Department of Forestry.
