    A 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.
