Abstract

Use of the guides presented here will enable selection of Allegheny hardwood stands most likely to regenerate successfully after clearcutting. The guides are based on how well before-logging criteria predicted success in a number of stands 5 years after cutting. In comparison to earlier information, these guidelines recommend more small reproduction and higher quality, though fewer, stems of large reproduction. Guides to evaluate regeneration after cutting, based on both number and height of stems, are included also.
