DescriptionThe preponderance of white fir regeneration on sugar pine management units has always plagued forest managers in the sugar pine-fir type in the Sierra Nevada. Clear cutting small even-aged groups appears to offer at least a partial solution to this problem. In one recent study more white fir than sugar pine seedlings in openings died within 2 years, and more white firs were damaged by freezing and browsing. As a result sugar pine has a head start in the race for dominance.
