DescriptionIn managing hardwood stands, one of the most important tasks is to secure adequate reproduction of desirable species after harvest cuttings. Natural reproduction is usually relied upon. This can be either advance growth (seedlings or seedling sprouts) or reproduction that becomes established after the cutting. Which one the forest manager should mainly rely upon depends on several factors: relative tolerance of desired and undesired species, abundance of desirable stems and their competitors, logging damage, and cost of different methods of tilting succession to favor preferred species.
