Description: Plastic shelters were used to grow red oak seedlings on good-to-excellent Appalachian hardwood growing sites in north central West Virginia. Preliminary results indicate that shelters have the potential to stimulate development of red oak seedling height growth, especially if height growth continues once the seedling tops are above the 5-foot-tall shelters.
Keywords: artificial regeneration, red oak seedlings, plastic shelters, good-to-excellent sites, Central Appalachian hardwoods
