Abstract
  • Increased demand for wood fiber has necessarily increased the intensity of forest management in recent years. In the Pacific Northwest the release of deciduous vegetation following clearcutting of Douglas-fir is a major problem. Herbicides which have been used in the past to control this brush competition may no longer be politically feasible tools. The planting of grass in clearcuts is discussed as a possible brush suppressant. Some preliminary measurements are made which compare growth rates of trees which have invaded grassy areas to trees which have regenerated naturally in clearcuts. Compartment models describing alternative systems of forest management are constructed and suggestions for further research are made.
