DescriptionEnvironmental changes resulting from logging in the Douglas-fir region often create ideal growing conditions for many woody and herbaceous plants. A rapid increase of brush and low vegetation, in turn, can seriously hinder efforts to establish a new stand. Consequently, one argument against partial cutting in Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is that it opens the forest canopy sufficiently to stimulate growth of ground vegetation and thus makes future stand regeneration more difficult.
