DescriptionAt present, direct seeding of hardwoods in the Lake States is more of a supplemental than a primary means of artificial regeneration. Direct seeding may be used to augment a poor seed crop or increase the proportion of a preferred species. In the future, it will no doubt play a bigger role-in anticipation of this we need to collect and store the amounts of seed needed. With direct seeding, stand treatments would not have to be scheduled around good seed crops, species composition could be carefully controlled, and genetically superior seed could be sown. "Immediate" regeneration would be possible.
