DescriptionTo maximize chances of successful regeneration, carefully consider the following regeneration principles. Harvesting alone does not guarantee that the desired species will be established. The conditions required for the initial establishment and early growth of the desired species largely determine what regeneration method you should use and any supplemental treatments needed to enhance regeneration success. The species must be suited to the site. You should evaluate the regeneration potential of the desired species.
