    Description

    Natural regeneration of harvested old-growth stands of redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) is one way to start a new forest that is needed quickly for continuous timber production. Natural seedlings and sprouts developing after stands were cut were studied on the Redwood Experimental Forest, northern California. Three types of regeneration cuttings were investigated: small clear-cutting, shelterwood, and selection. All three types provided satisfactory results–chiefly in redwood, but also in Douglas-fir and other conifers. Red-wood sprouts added many potential crop trees. Of the two main seedbeds created by logging disturbance, the unburned mineral was more productive than burned mineral seedbed for all conifer species.
