Sprouting of old-growth redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (D. Don) Endl.) was studied on slopes clearcut 5 to 10 years previously. Moderate slash burning had no discernible effect on sprouting. Sprout distribution around stumps became less symmetrical as slope gradient increased, tending toward reduced sprouting on the upper face. Sprout production, measured by number of sprouts per meter of stump circumference, was greatest in the 200- to 400-year age range and decreased rapidly thereafter. Excessive logging damage reduced sprout production by one-half. Forest Sci. 16:339-341.
