    Description

    Forested areas in the Cumberland Plateau region have experienced a myriad of disturbances over the last century. As a result, hardwood forests, such as those found in north Alabama, contain a mixture of species with wide ranges of shade tolerance and growth rates. Both site characteristics and past disturbance history have contributed to stands that are considered low to medium quality. Research into the outcome of regenerating these stands is limited. In this paper, we evaluated possible regeneration outcomes in several stands using a regeneration model that ranks expected postharvest performance based on reproduction origin, size, and competitiveness.
