FORAR is a functional stand model which used ecological parameters to relate.

The FORAR model developed at ORNL in the late s (Mielke et al.ShugartDale et al. Dale and Doyle ), can be used to assess changes in forest stands and would be applied to the longleaf pine-wiregrass ecosystem at Fort Stewart under a proposal we have submitted to SERDP in collaboration with colleagues at Sam Houston.

This report is a user's manual for FORAR, a computer model simulating stand growth and composition of upland forests of south central Arkansas.

The model computes: the number and biomass of each. Mortality from Dendroctonus and cut and leave practices shifted loblolly pine communities to mixed upland hardwoods in model predictions generated by the southern variant of the Forest Vegetation Simulator.

In addition to being an effective bark beetle control, cut and leave suppression did not alter predicted forest composition 50 years hence. Arkansas Oak Natural Area supports a number of plant species considered to be rare in Arkansas. Four different landscape types are present on the site: an open sand barren, a dry upland forest dominated by Arkansas oak, a creek-bottom community along Mill Branch, and a seep community containing an exceptionally diverse flora.

This generally is true of Duke Forest on upland sites. However, lowland sites along creeks and steep north-facing hillsides, support self-sustaining stands of other hardwood species.

Succession is a continual, never-ending process – the forest ecosystem is in a constant state of flux. Birds of upland oak forests in the Arkansas Ozark Mountains: present community structure and potential impacts of burning, borers, and forestry practices. Spetich, M.A. Gen. Tech. rep. SRS Asheville, NC: USDA Forest Service, Southern Research Station:   Today, upland forests are pine-dominated and have been repeatedly logged—prior to extensive Euroamerican settlement in the late s, these uplands were sparsely occupied and largely open (little understory), dominated by pines and various hardwood admixtures (Bragg, ).

The rolling uplands of the Midsouth are also dissected by a number. The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service is in the process of establishing a re-search project on the treatment of upland pine (Pinus spp.) forests for old-growth characteristics on the Crossett Experimental Forest in Ashley County, Arkansas.

Most of the natural divisions of Arkansas do not have representative examples. Data to parameterize this model were obtained from various sources. Forest type proportions over a historical period were obtained from the FIA database (USDA FIA, ).Researchers at the US Forest Service Southern Research Station have used the FIA data to compile the historical record of different forest types by county from the s to the most recent surveys for the states.

Long-term changes in forest structure and species composition of an upland oak forest in Arkansas. Forest Ecology and Management. (): Progress 10/01/05 to 09/30/06 Outputs OUTPUTS: The existing oak forests of the Ozark Highlands are one of the region's greatest and most highly treasured resources.

The studies are addressing prescribed fire and fire history, growth, woody species reproduction, competitive capacity, stand dynamics, stand composition, forest species restoration, quantitative silviculture, development of forest management methods, forest ecology, disturbance ecology, and diversity of these upland hardwood forests.

This work will be conducted by SO (Managing Upland Forest Ecosystems in the Mid-South) as part of an ongoing study on restoring mature shortleaf-loblolly pine ecosystems in southern Arkansas.

The transition from a Shortleaf/Post Oak Forest (State 1) to the Mixed Mid-story (State 2) is a result of time and long periods (greater than 10 years) of no fire and/or forest management practices.

Although the Crossett Experimental Forest (CEF) played a well-publicized role in the development of uneven-aged southern pine silviculture, work on a selection method in Arkansas (USA) did not originate there.

Over the next few years, USFS research in southern Arkansas focused on the upland pine forests of the Crossett Experimental Forest. Methods Original sampling design.Loblolly pine (Pinus taeda), also called Arkansas pine, North Carolina pine, and oldfield pine, is the most commercially important forest species in the southern United States, where it is dominant on about million ha (29 million acres) and makes up over one-half of the standing pine is a medium-lived, intolerant to moderately tolerant tree with rapid juvenile growth.
