DescriptionReproduction tallies on 65 areas planned for clearcutting were compared with reproduction 2 to 4 years after cutting. As a result, we recommend that 70 percent of the area be stocked with at least 5,000 black cherry seedlings or 30,000 seedlings per acre of desirable species before cutting. If this requirement had been used on these 65 areas, the proportion of regeneration successes would have been raised from 54 to 92 percent.
