DescriptionA survey in the Blue Mountains of north-eastern Oregon and southeastern Washington showed that, on the average, partial cuts in the grand fir/big huckleberry community were well stocked with a mixture of advance, natural post-harvest, and planted reproduction of a number of species. Partial cuts in the mixed conifer/pinegrass community had considerably fewer seedlings; some plots were understocked. Much of the understocking appeared to be related to low and irregular overstory density, lack of advance reproduction, reproduction destroyed by logging, and heavy grass cover.
