Forest managers will have to make decisions regarding regeneration strategies for mountain pine beetle-attacked stands because not all attacked stands will be salvaged. We developed tools to help forest managers make these decisions in the Montane Spruce zone in the Merritt Timber Supply Area. Our tools predict the abundance and spatial distribution of advance regeneration in attacked stands. For ease of use, these models are available as an Excel computer program.
