Many existing Piedmont hardwood stands are composed of trees that are larqely under 45 cm in diameter and contain a desirable oak component, as well as larqe amounts of undesirable red maple and sourwood. In stands under evenaqed silviculture, season of harvest can be used as an effective manaqenent tool to favor different species compositions. If oak or other hardwood production is the manaqement objective a dormant season harvest will result in increased sprout viqor of all oak as well as non—oak species. If pine conversion is the objective then a qrowinq season harvest will reduce the viqor of all hardwood species and allow for easier competition control. The hiqher densities of all classes of reqenerants on better sites indicates control will be more difficult.
