Plan harvests to take advantage of natural regeneration. When tree planting on agricultural sites or to assist natural regeneration, consider these guidelines.

General Guidelines:

  • Choose tree species that meet planting objectives and are naturally suited to the planting site.
  • Target previously cleared areas along streams, forested sites needing species enrichment, aesthetically sensitive areas, and unproductive or erosive sites slow to regenerate naturally.
