    In the white oak group, when one tree produces well, all of the potential acorn-producing trees in the population tend to produce well. In contrast, in the red oak group, some producers yield well in a given year while others do not. In addition, only a relatively small proportion of trees are inherently good seed. Crop tree release should be carried out when the trees are at least 15 years old or the crop trees are more than 25 feet tall. As neighboring tree crowns are eliminated, the crop trees' crowns will expand into the newly opened space. The growth of the tree trunk accelerates as the crown size and leaf surface area increase.

    Crop tree release is most applicable to polesized (”) and small sawtimber ( 14”) stands that are overstocked and while trees still have the capacity to increase their crown size.

The term "timber" describes sawn wood that is mm (/2") or more in its smallest dimension. There are two categories of timbers.

In winterfive crop tree thinning plots were established in central Connecticut. Stands were mature red oak sawtimber ( years old) with no history of prior management.

Crop Tree Release TSI is controlling, manipulating and improving the growth, quality and species composition of a timber stand. One method of TSI is Crop Tree Re-lease (CTR), the practice of deadening selected trees in younger, overstocked forests for the benefit of releasing desir-able crop trees.

Overstocked indicatesFile Size: KB. Ina crop tree study was established in a pole-sized stand consisting of black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) and northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.).Author: Thomas M.

Schuler. Immature acre stands with as few as five potentially high-value red oak crop trees/acre should be considered for crop tree release. Applying related assumptions to pole and sapling size crop trees reveals a good probability for long-term financial gains.

Timber stand improvement, or TSI, is a term used to identify forest management practices which improve the vigor, stocking, composition, productivity, and quality of forest stands. The improvement is accomplished by removing poor trees and allowing crop trees to fully use the growing space.

The chief aim of TSI is continued production of more and better timber. treatment costs, volume removed, and three-year crop tree growth response were reported'. This report focuses on residual stand damage from the two crop tree release treatments. STAND DESCRIPTION The twelve stands were dominated by white oak averaging 58 percent of the total ft2 of basal area per acre (stems inch d.b.h Apply a crown-touching crop tree release by cutting all trees except other crop trees, whose crowns touch the crop tree crown.

Normally, it is not necessary to cut overtopped trees. b) Small sawtimber stands (10" - 16" DBH). Thin to approximately 80 square feet using crop tree release. As with poletimber, favor dominants of any species. Advanced regeneration of any species (see above) should be encouraged and will need to be protected during any timber sale.

c) Large sawtimber stands greater than 16" DBH. A quick guide providing commonly used herbicides used in forest site preparation and release treatments. Tables are broken into (1) conifer site preparation, (2) hardwood plantation site preparation, (3) hardwood natural regeneration site preparation, (4) conifer early release, (5) early hardwood release, (6) cut surface herbicides used for intermediate or crop tree release.

Clay. A good rule of thumb for thinning in young stands is to release the crown of every potential crop tree on at least two sides (of a circular crown) so that there is feet of space between trees. For crop tree release, release at least 3 sides of the crowns of the very best trees for feet between trees.Planting Oaks For Timber and Other Uses The nearly 50 million acres of oak-dominated woodlands in the North Central states are a common and economically important part of the landscape of this region.

Red, black and white oaks are the principal species found in these woodlands, though several other oak species can be locally Size: KB.D. Crop Tree Release - Crop tree release is a precommercial silvicultural treatment applied to individual crop trees in established immature stands.

Crop tree management focuses on releasing individual trees that have been selected to produce benefits consistent with stand-specific objectives.
