Prescribed burning was done in a 102-year-old stand of Quercus rubra in Wisconsin with ca. 7000 1-year-old seedlings per acre. One year after the fire, the survival of seedlings on burn plots was 42% compared with 93% on unburnt plots. Mortality was related to temperature near the root-collar. New shoots developed from the root-collar of most seedlings that survived the fire.
