In Hungary, the red oak (Quercus rubra), the most widespread non-native oak has been grown in forests for more than 100 years. Due to its fast growth, high yield and valuable timber material it is the most important exotic tree species besides the hybrid poplars and black locust. The variations of the natural regeneration technologies applicable in red oak stands should be developed according to the main felling methods and the associated natural regeneration possibilities. In the case of red oak stands the application of clear cutting-like regeneration cutting and shelterwood cutting can be recommended for the practice.
