DescriptionThe initiation and rapid increase in harvesting of Shasta red fir mountain hemlock stands in southwestern Oregon have emphasized the lack of information needed to manage these species intelligently. The most important single management practice for converting old growth to managed forests is the application of cutting methods that will assure prompt regeneration of desired species. Clearcutting in staggered settings has been used for the first sales in Shasta red fir on the Rogue River National Forest. A pioneering study to assess natural regeneration was started in 1951 from which preliminary useful information is now available.
