Description: When a regeneration harvest cut is planned for even-aged stands or it is time to make another cut in uneven-aged stands, the first thing to do is assess the regeneration potential. Regeneration potential is the likelihood of being successful in reproducing desired species. You need an assessment to be reasonably sure that regeneration and management objectives can be met. In even-aged stands, an assessment will help determine which regeneration method to use. In uneven-aged stands it will help determine where to locate groups, which species are reproducing, and how the reproduction is growing.
