Regeneration after Clearcutting in Subalpine Stands near Windigo Pass, Oregon
Abstract:Subalpine units of mountain hemlock (Tsuga mertensiana [Bong.] Carr.), near Windigo Pass, Oregon, did not regenerate immediately after being clearcut between 1959 and 1962. They were adequately stocked 9-12 years later, however, regardless of postharvest treatment. Natural regeneration was adequate. Except on flat sites above 6,000 feet, clearcutting appears to be an acceptable harvesting method in these subalpine stands.
