DescriptionSuccessful regeneration depends upon good coordination between seed production and seedbed preparation. To aid forest managers in scheduling seedbed preparation, a simple sequential sampling plan for estimating potential cone crops as much as a year in advance of the seed fall was developed and is described herein. With advance knowledge of the cone crop prospects, the manager can schedule seedbed preparation or select an alternative action such as postponing work or substituting planting.
