Scarification, with natural or artificial seeding, was employed on 662 acres to establish new stands of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) in northwestern Wisconsin. Twleve out of 16 stands of mature jack pine were regenerated by scarifying the soil with a dozer blade prior to clear cutting. Seven out of nine non-stocked areas were successfully scarified and direct-seeded. Four stripcuts scarified after cutting, with reliance on seedfall from the adjacent uncut strips, were unsuccessful.
