Description: Regeneration after clearcutting of Southern Appalachian hardwood stands varies substantially in species composition not only among sites of different quality and previous-stand composition, but also among sites of similar quality and similar previous-stand composition. Severe competition from less desirable species for available growing space is cOllDlon in regenerated stands. The appropriate use of clearcutting, the need for quantitative models to predict species composition after harvest cutting, and the need for alternative cultural practices are discussed.
