In the Daniel Boone National Forest, for at least 15 years, researchers and forest managers have coordinated studies using controlled fire as a management tool. New results from research in the Cumberland Ranger District on the response of oak and two of its competitors, red maple and sassafras, confirm that fire alone may not be sufficient to promote oak regeneration. The studies have, however, revealed new insights about the life history of oak and its competitors and generated new paths of research to explore treatment options and promote long-term survival of healthy oak forests in the Daniel Boone and elsewhere in the Appalachian uplands.
