Growth of Advance Regeneration in Response to Residual Overstory Treatment in Northern Idaho
Abstract:The effects of killing a low-volume residual overstory on growth of advance natural regeneration in North Idaho were assessed. Killing this overstory had little effect on subsequent growth of advance regeneration regardless of the basal area killed. Growth of regeneration following release was affected by competition from other advance regeneration and competition from brush. Height-growth response was negligible when density of either advance regeneration or brush were high. Residual tree killing was associated with improved crown vigor of regeneration where residual overstory basal area was high. Height growth of advance regeneration following residual tree killing was highly correlated with prerelease height growth and current crown vigor of advance regeneration. West. J. Appl. For. 7(3):78-81.

- Each regional journal of applied forestry focuses on research, practice, and techniques targeted to foresters and allied professionals in specific regions of the United States and Canada. The Western Journal of Applied Forestry covers the western United States, including Alaska, and western Canada; WJAF will also consider manuscripts reporting research in northern Mexico that has potential application in the southwestern United States.
