Root system response of naturally regenerated Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) after complete overstory removal
Abstract:Long regeneration periods, which result in two-layered or multilayered forest stands, are an important element of the close-to-nature forest management paradigm in central Europe. Such extended regeneration periods, however, may lead to undesirable development of advance regeneration, specifically in species such as Douglas-fir (
