    Description

    The potential for aspen regeneration in conifer stands has been underestimated on the Salida Ranger District. Harvest of mature aspen stands on the Salida and San Carlos Districts encouraged regeneration. Following harvest, the Douglas-fir and some Engelmann spruce stands in the Arkansas Hills area regenerated primarily to aspen. Disturbance through aspen harvest, prescribed fire, wildfire, and other approaches is critical to aspen sustainability and health for the San Isabel National Forest. Disturbance must take place to regenerate the aspen component and reduce the conifer invasion.
