DescriptionA survey of cutover timberland in the Butte Falls and Dead Indian areas showed that most partial cuts were moderately or well-stocked with natural regeneration. Clearcuts in the Butte Falls area were also well stocked, primarily with planted ponderosa pine; but many in the Dead Indian area were not. Advance regeneration was an important stocking component in partial cuts. Stocking varied by forest type, species, and drainage and correlated with an array of environmental variables. Regression equations describe present stocking patterns, and others predict future stocking based on variables that can be observed or specified before harvest.
