Effects of stump diameter and thinning treatments at different ages of coppice are described in terms of growth and yield of Emory oak (Quercus emoryi) sprouts over a 5-year period. Growth and yield of residual sprouts depend largely on the number of sprouts left after thinning, and the age of sprouts at thinning. Effects of stump diameter were inconclusive. Harvesting cycles for fuelwood might be reduced through proper timing of thinning.
