Description: Predicting the effects of silvicultural choices on tree regeneration has traditionally been difficult with the tools currently available to foresters. In an effort to improve this, we have developed a simulation framework based on hypotheses of stand dynamics for several species found in the Missouri Ozarks. This framework includes separate modules for establishment, growth, and mortality. Within the establishment module, empirical parameters are used to stochastically simulate regeneration establishment following a variety of harvest-based silvicultural manipulations. A pre-disturbance inventory is used to account for existing conditions and previously published sprouting parameters define the potential contributions of stump-sprouts to regeneration. The collection of previously published sprouting parameters selected for use and their role insimulating regeneration establishment in the Missouri Ozarks are discussed.
