    Description

    Regenerating commercially important species following the harvest of an existing mixed hardwood stand requires adequate advance regeneration of the desired species and control of competing vegetation. These objectives can be achieved by removing the noncommercial stems before or after harvesting. This study was designed to evaluate the efficacy of pre- and post harvest slashing alternatives and to assess cost differences between the alternatives. Four treatments (pre- and postharvest slashing, with and without herbicide stump treatment) and a control were selected. Each treatment was applied to a 120 feet x 120 feet plot within which measurements were taken on four 1/10-acre subplots. Each treatment was replicated six times within the harvest area, resulting in a total study area size of 9.9 acres. Preliminary results indicate that there was little difference between treatments in the total number of stems.
