Reforestation of Clear-cut Strips in a Jack Pine Stand with Plug Seedlings
Abstract:Planting of containerized seedlings was successful on a strip clear-cut in a mature stand of jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) in northeastern Minnesota. But on plots where jack pine cones were scattered with no site preparation other than was provided by the logging activity, a chumpy, understocked stand developed. Width of clear-cut strips--132 and 198 feet--did not affect seedling survival or height growth.
