Burning for Oak Regeneration

Jesse Randall
The long relationship between oaks and fire has resulted in several adaptations to fire: thick bark which provides some protection from heat, leaf litter which dries quickly and promotes fire spread, and an ability to quickly resprout from the root collar. These adaptations allow for rapid growth of aboveground stems from existing root systems which “capture” growing space and vie for light resources more effectively. Fire removes litter and enhances nutrient rich mineral seed beds, allowing acorns to germinate and grow with less competitive stress.PMR 2088G
