dc.description.abstractThis paper explores the impact that prescribed fires have on red oak (Quercus rubra L.) regeneration in Canada and Ontario. Prescribed fires are important to consider the best management techniques that should be used in oak-dominated stands. To increase the success of prescribed burns the oak regeneration should be monitored and additional methods such as thinning, competition control and shelterwood harvesting should be used. Therefore, prescribed burns will have an affect on oak-dominated stands and how they are managed. Prescribed burns should be used when possible to naturally regenerate oak species and increase the fire cycle in areas that it was historically present.en_US
