    Description

    Dynamic change - that is what we see in the establishment and development of western larch (Larix occidentalis) forests. Spawned by traumatic events such as fire, harvesting, or post- harvest treatments that prepare receptive seedbeds, larch regenerates promptly and more often than not, excessively over much of its natural range (Schmidt and others 1976).
