ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the conservation and management of oak commoners that remain at the Henry Eilers Shoal Creek Conservation Area (HESCCA) in Montgomery County, Illinois. It states that the oaks all regenerate well that ensure good species and structural diversity in the future, while the woods seem to be more open in appearance. It says that HESCCA is one of the last refuges for local biological diversity, with controlled erosion and little run-off.
