Title: Natural reproduction in certain cutover pine-fir stands in California

Author: Fowells, H.A.; Schubert, G.H.;

Date: 1951

Source: Journal of Forestry. 49(3): 192-196

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Natural reproduction must provide future crops of timber on most of the forest land being placed under management in California. Relatively few acres will be planted or seeded in the near future because planting costs are high, facilities for undertaking large-scale planting are inadequate, and direct seeding has not yet proved satisfactory. In the pine region it is desirable that reproduction stands be adequately stocked with vigorous pine seedlings. How promising is the outlook for natural restocking. The degree of success in one important locality is the subject of this paper. It reports mainly seedling occurrence on cutover land between 1923 and 1947. The results are part of a more general study of forest regeneration in this and other localities in California.
