The potential for the natural regeneration of conifers in Britain
Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
Chris J Nixon
Conifer tree seed biology is outlined (production and dispersal, dormancy and germination). Factors affecting seedling establishment are noted. Techniques for the assessment and management of established seedlings are described, as are methods of forest management for the encouragement on natural regeneration. Relative economics are discussed. An appendix provides notes on regeneration potential for the main conifer species grown in Britain.
