ABSTRACT
The article presents a study that evaluates the health of oak forest ecosystems in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The evaluation focused on the diversity of objectives that people hold for Southern Appalachian forests. It presents a comparison of Southern Appalachian forest composition, structure, disturbance characteristics and value perspective. It used the four criteria set forth by Kolb and others in 1994 for health forest ecosystems as the standards against which relative health of Southern Appalachian oak forests are judged.
