Description: Hardwoods reproduce naturally through seedlings established in the understory, through sprouts that emerge from the stump or roots of cut trees, and through seedlings that start in new openings. Some species reproduce in all three ways. Understory reproduction is usually of shade-tolerant species with inherently slow early growth rates. Generally, the taller an understory tree is before release, the faster it will grow after release. Seedlings that start in new openings are usually shade intolerant and fast growing but require seed trees and a relatively bare seedbed to get started. Whether of tolerant or intolerant species, sprouts grow rapidly for the first 5 years or so.
