Methods of Oak Silviculture in Austria [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
In Austria oak stands occupy an area covering ≈ 150 000 ha or ≈ 4\,% of the total forest area. Half of the oak stands are managed as coppice or coppice with standards, and half are managed as high forest. During the last 2 decades there has been a remarkable increase in developing young oak stands. The interest in managing suitable forest areas for oak is apparently growing. Therefore regeneration methods, timely and proper management and thinning regimes will be very important in the near future. As a result of different growth performances it is necessary to determine different production targets and rotation cycles. For this reason treatment programmes have been developed dependent on selected sites considering biological, ecological and technical parameters to achieve high economic yield. Investigations into oak stands of different age classes have already shown the importance of timely cleaning, tending and continuous thinning during the first third of the rotation cycles. Various treatment programmes and practical knowledge relating to regeneration, tending, crop selection and thinning have been discussed.
