DescriptionDry, south-facing slopes, such as those commonly found in north-central Idaho, often need to be planted more than once due to poor seedling survival. The Idaho State Forest Practices Act requires minimum stocking levels to be achieved within 5 years following harvest. However, this requirement can be difficult to meet based on seedling mortality due to moisture stress, vegetative competition, and animal browse. As container seedlings are useful in revegetating harsh sites (Walker and Kane 1997), a strong industry interest exists in determining optimal stocktypes for regenerating inland northwest forests.
