Description: Poor regeneration of pine following harvest on nonindustrial timberland has been identified as a major cause for loss of pine forests and slowdown of softwood growth in the Southern United States.Developing a strategy for regeneration assessment requires clear definition of sampling objectives, sampling design, and analytical processes. It is important that regeneration surveys include enough flexibility to assess the diversity of cover types and management intensities common on upland pine sites. Discussion centers on the USDA, Forest Service's successive forest inventories in the South Central Region.

Keywords: Area class, SOFIA.
