    Forest regeneration needs to be applied under the direction of silvicultural prescriptions and the context of silvicultural systems. Management interventions should be implemented if the current or expected stand conditions are unfavourable for target species to achieve management objectives. To illustrate these concepts, this paper uses coastal Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. Overstory Removal/Shelterwood Seedcut. This treatment will take place on approximately acres in mature pine stands with patches of pine regeneration. Where there is sufficient regeneration, an overstory removal harvest will take place. This treatment will retain enough large trees to provide a seed source. Shelterwood Seedcut.

    Variations of the shelterwood regeneration method offer opportunities to incorporate aesthet-ic objectives and provide habitat for animal species that need more-closed forest conditions. Both planted and natural seedlings benefit from some shade for a few years, but the costs of overstory removal and the associated damage to established. Light, soil moisture, herbs, shrubs, woody reproduction, and overstory structure were measured to quantify treatment effects. Shelterwood harvests and wildlife thinnings significantly increased light availability and reduced overstory and midstory cover. Prescribed fire signifi-cantly increased the density of oak seedlings and sprouts. 10 cm.

    The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) worked with International Forest Products Limited (INTERFOR) to plan and implement a partial cutting trial at Chamiss Bay on Vancouver Island's west coast. A study was conducted to investigate the harvesting feasibility of partial cutting in old-growth stands on steep slopes. The study sites were located within the CWHvml. The initial harvest is a heavy cut that establishes regeneration on most of the area, but retains acceptable trees irregularly located and in groups. This is a normal “two aged” treatment, such as a low density deferred shelterwood. As subsequent treatments remove portions of the overstory, the regeneration is damaged and re-starts.

Shelterwood silviculture is commonly used to regenerate oaks in upland stands. However, competition from other species such as tulip-poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera) may deter oak regeneration when these traditional shelterwood techniques are shelterwood-burn technique is a relatively new tool for regenerating oak-dominated stands on some upland sites while.

It is designed to assist fores- ters and other resource management specialists in solv. The period during which regeneration gets established is known as regeneration period. The regeneration occurs under a shelterwood which is removed in a final felling only after the natural regeneration has got established.

It provides for adaptation of selection system principles on steep and rugged terrain. Tree seedlings start to suffer stem damage or tissue death when the temperature at the soil surface reaches approximately 52°C. Seedling mortality rate accelerates as temperatures increase.

Resistance to heat damage increases with size as the ability of a seedling to shade its base increase. Small newly germinated seedlings are at risk in late spring and early summer, while larger nursery. The vegetation, as a whole, is xerophytic. The aromatic shrubs namely; Artemisia and some thorny species of Caragana, Prunus, and Rosa are forest consists of Conifers mostly having Cedrus deodara, Pinus gerardiana and Juniperus s ilex, Pinus wallichiana, Picea smithiana are also -leaved trees may include Fraxinus and Acer.

Preparing a typical shelterwood condition could include three possible types of cuttings: 1) a preliminary cut might be made to select high yielding trees to leave for seed production; 2) an establishment cut can be made that prepares a bare soil seed-bed as well as trees that provide seed just before seed fall; and/or 3) a removal cut of overstory seed trees that have established seedlings.

Diameter distributions of planted and natural oak regeneration 12 years following overstory removal on shelterwood plots only. The inset graphs are an enlarged view of the oak distribution.

Hence, thinning compared favorably to the unthinned control in most cases, and the regenerating cohort should be sufficient to ensure stand renewal if well protected during final overstory removal.

Once regeneration is well established, the remaining overstory trees are harvested and the new forest grows in full sunlight.

The timing of the final harvest is critical. The regeneration should be tall enough (greater than 5 feet) to be above the deer's reach but not so large (greater than 10 feet) as to be significantly damaged during final. 23 Potential for damage to seedlings during overstory removal or natural regeneration.

The shelterwood method, in which trees are removed over at least two harvest entries, retains some larger depending on terrain Potential often greater than with CC because of multiple entries, residual-tree damage, and pos. Skidding of logs is performed in a variety of ways, depending upon the locality and the economic circumstances of the operator.

The most common method skids one or more logs or entire trees by a rubber-tired skidder (Figure 2). These machines operate successfully over steep terrain. a shelterwood. In this instance, the shelterwood overstory density is adjusted to encourage the proper regeneration of intermediate-shade-tolerant spe-cies (typically 45 to 60 square feet per acre).

After regeneration establishment, normally 10 to 20 years, the shelterwood overstory should be reduced to. However, the primary goal of a shelterwood system is typically not to increase the growth rate of residual trees to be removed in the overstory cut (Montoro Girona et al.

), but to serve as a. Past harvesting and steep drier conditions in Block 2B contributed to a very open overstory with a continuous heavy understory dominated by hemlock. Silvicultural System. A natural shelterwood with overstory retention was used to release the natural understory, while maintaining structural diversity in the overstory.

It may not be practical on steep or difficult terrain; although steep slopes do not generally limit harvest methods in Michigan. III. Shelterwood Method There are a number of variations of this method. This involves the removal of trees by a series of partial cuttings resembling thinnings that gradually remove the.

In previous shelterwood studies in the Southem Appalachians, residual basal areas have ranged from 25 to 66 ft’/ac, and the overwood has been retained from 5 to 13 years.
