John L. Willis, Ph.D
Managing Oak-Pine Stands
John L. Willis, Ph.D., works as a Research Forester for the
Southern Research Station. He recently had a study published in
about mixed stands as a reasonable alternative to pine plantations or
exclusively managing for hardwoods. Historically, removing either oak or
pine and focusing exclusively on just one has been a goal of many
landowners. But managing both has re-emerged as a goal for many of today's
landowners. If you're a typical landowner, you won't want to miss Willis'
insight into how to make that happen successfully.
