Title: Natural regeneration following timber harvest in interior cedar-hemlock-white pine forests

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Natural regeneration of interior cedar-hemlock-white pine forests is usually prompt and abundant. These productive sites support up to 10 commercial timber species. Retrospective examination of cutover forest stands allowed determination of variables that are important predictors of regeneration. This report discusses variables such as habitat type, slope, aspect, elevation, residual overstory density and species composition, site preparation, and the number of years since disturbance. These variables can be used to predict stocking, density, and species composition of regeneration. Knowledge of these relationships can also be used to develop silvicultural prescriptions that will result in desired future conditions for these forests.

Keywords: succession, reforestation, Northern Rocky Mountains
