Northern hardwood reproduction was counted before, immediately after, and three years after removal of a shelterwood overstory. Although logging destroyed about 35 percent of the advance reproduction, more than 45,000 stems/acre remained and all quadrats were stocked. After three years the number of stems taller than 3.6. ft had more than doubled arid 93 percent of the quadrats were stocked. A stocking goal for advanced reproduction of 5,000 stems/acre, 2 to 4 ft tall, is suggested.
