Low intensity, spring prescribed burns have been used since at the Cedar Creek Natural History Area in Minnesota in an attempt to restore the area to an oak savanna.

Prescribed burn in oak savannah in Iowa With the rise in interest in environmental conservation, restoration and preservation of surviving areas of oak savanna began.

Low intensity, spring prescribed burns have been used since at the Cedar Creek Ecosystem Science Reserve in Minnesota in an attempt to restore the area to an oak savanna. At Cedar Creek Natural History Area, Minnesota, USA (Davis et al. ), a replicated controlled study of oak savanna restoration by prescribed burning (initiated in ) found that ‘open country’ bird abundance increased as restoration progressed.

The area Minnesota in an attempt to restore existing oak was divided into blocks, some of which were sub- forests to oak savannas (Irving ), like those that jected to varying prescribed burning schedules and occupied much of the area in presettlement times some of which were maintained as unburned con- (Pierce ).

Complete restoration may not be possible with annual burning because such burning seems to have little effect on large—tree (@>25 cm dbh) mortality.

In a pasture or farmstead, the process of oak savanna restoration is very similar to a prairie restoration, as detailed in our previous post, Remnants of a Rare Ecosystem. Livestock is fenced out, or mowing is ceased for a period of time to facilitate a prescribed burn. Fire is especially important in oak savanna restoration.

An oak savanna restoration project should not be initiated if fire is not an option. Ideally, fire should be used annually for at least 10 years. After 10 years, fire. To address this issue in temperate oak‐dominated ecosystems, we studied the effects of fire frequency on stand structure and dynamics in oak savanna and woodland stands that had been burned 0–26 times in 32 yr, in the Anoka Sand Plain region of Minnesota (USA).

The wetlands, woodlands, fens and forests on our land are all part of a unique patchwork of ecosystems that cover this landscape with a bewildering array of diversity.

(See Figure 1.) Prairies. Southern Oak Savanna Extending from southern Indiana across central and southern Illinois through Missouri to Oklahoma and Texas, the southern oak savanna is dominated primarily by post oak and blackjack oak (VestalHowell and KuceraStritch.

Cedar Creek has been practicing prescribed burning since the s, making it one of the longest ongoing scientific fire experiments in the world. Researchers at Cedar Creek study the effects of fire at individual, community, and ecosystem levels with the goal of maintaining the prairies and developing effective restoration methods for the savanna.Comments Management and restoration of oak savannas are of particular benefit to red-headed woodpeckers.
