During the summer and autumn of 2004 the procedure described in the document 'An Operational Sampling Program to Determine the Effect of Site Variables on the Natural Regeneration Density of Lodgepole Pine after Harvest' (rev. June 2003) was implemented. It is the second year of implementation of a project that began in 2003. The purpose of this report is fourfold: 1. To summarize any departures in procedures, and reasons for them; 2. To document the locations of the field work, the distribution of the sampling, and the initial observations for later reference, both for the current year and to-date for the project; 3. To document the challenges in implementing the procedures as well as the implications for continuity over the expected term of the project; 4. To present observations and conclusions regarding filled seed counts and cone sampling intensities for ground cone surveys.
