Abstract

A survey carried out in 13-year-old circular openings of 1, 2, 4, and 6 tree heights (H) in diameter, in a 1H east–west strip, and in a 20-ha clear-cut of similar ages shows that regeneration of lodgepole pine (Pinuscontorta Dougl. var. latifolia Engelm.) in the 4H and 6H cuts is comparable with that of the larger clear-cut. Regeneration is poor in the 2H opening and nonexistent in the 1H circular openings. The 1H east–west strip shows good regeneration.
