DescriptionA better job of regeneration on cutover areas can be done if foresters know what areas are difficult to regenerate and what sort of practices are best for the difficult areas. A study recently completed at Cascade Head Experimental Forest has supplied that sort of information for a typical spruce-hemlock clearcut. Nearly a fifth of the area was still unstocked 6 years after logging, but this condition need not happen again. Most problem areas can be readily identified, and special treatments applied soon enough can insure better seedling establishment.
