INT-RN-341: Needed: Guidelines for defining acceptable advance regeneration


Ferguson, Dennis E. 1984. Needed: Guidelines for defining acceptable advance regeneration. Research Note INT-341. Ogden, UT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Intermountain Research Station. 5 p.

Advance regeneration is an important component in many stands scheduled for harvesting. Properly managed, such regeneration can contribute to a healthy, new stand, but too often trees do not quickly respond to the new environment or take too long to adjust. Definitions of acceptable advance regeneration are needed for pre- and postharvest inventories. The author discusses how to develop criteria for acceptable advance regeneration and guidelines for conducting inventories.

Keywords: succession, Northern Rocky Mountains, reproduction, inventory
