Oaks are among the slowest growing species and require partial light conditions (intermediate light tolerance) to prosper. Because they are such slow-growers, they need a head start as advance reproduction and to compete with faster-growing species. Stands require frequent disturbances to maintain those intermediate light conditions for oak growth. There are several practices that are available to encourage growth of oaks in these intermediate light conditions and discourage other species.
