The woody vegetative composition of the Oak Glen Wildlife Management Area, a disjunct oak woodland in Seward County, Nebraska, was assessed using the Point-Quarter method. Based on data from three size categories, the presettlement composition of the woodland appears to have been a bur oak (Quercus macrocarpa) dominated community which, based on spacing and growth form, may have been savanna-like. Under present management, this community is succeeding to one consisting primarily of elm (Ulmus spp.), and hackberry (Celtis occidentalis)
