Commercial clearcutting of mature quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) on blocks ranging from 3 to 17 acres resulted in 30,000 sprouts per acre and 90-percent stocking of half-milacre plots after one growing season. Six years later, sprouts averaged 7,000 per acre, stocking was 76 percent, and mean height of the tallest stem 8.1 feet. Although these numbers were adequate for restocking, the poor condition of most sprouts, resulting from cattle trampling and snow breakage, strongly threatens the successful replacement of sawlog-quality growing stock.
