Abstract - When the shift away from clearcutting and planting on the Ouachita National Forest was implemented in the early 1990s, it became apparent that research support for reproduction cutting methods that employ natural regeneration in shortleaf pine stands in the Interior Highlands was lacking. To fill that need, research scientists and land managers established a three-phase research program that included demonstration case studies, replicated stand-level studies, and landscape studies at the watershed scale. This review of each of these three phases includes a brief history and justification, an overview of objectives and a summary of the study design, and a report on the status and future work planned in each phase.
