Description: Forest regeneration cuttings affect wildlife habitat more drastically than most forest management practices because a mature forest stand is replaced by a young sapling stand. Regeneration cuttings quickly provide habitat for many wildlife species but they also influence wildlife use of the new stand and adjacent areas throughout the rotation. Retaining snags, cavity trees, potential snags, and den trees in regeneration areas and excluding certain areas from harvest will benefit many wildlife species. (See Note 9.07 Stand Size, Distribution and Rotation Length for Forest Wildlife, for other important factors affecting wildlife.)
