DescriptionConifer establishment following regeneration treatments can be predicted in the grand fir-cedar-hemlock ecosystem of the northern Rocky Mountains. Alternative treatments can be evaluated by a model that represents regeneration establishment and early development. This model is designed to be used with the Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station's Prognosis Model (Stage 1973). Mathematical equations representing most harvest and site preparation methods common in the northern Rocky Mountains predict the probability of stocking, trees per acre, species composition, and tree heights between 3 to 20 years following treatment. These relations were derived from a stratified random sample of areas managed by conventional harvest and site preparation treatments. However, the analysis and modeling methods are structured to permit combinations of treatments within a stand that might differ from past practices.
