Stands of 7-year-old, densely regenerated, fire-origin lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. var. latifolia Englem.) were spaced at five density levels (from 1.1 to 4.5 m) on good, medium, and poor sites. The effects of spacing on stand height, diameter, mortality, crown development, and total volume were monitored. Spacing prescriptions were developed to ensure maximum utilization of growing space at different sites.
