This study was initiated in 1986 to investigate the effectiveness of treatment regimes for regenerating partially cut backlog sites with lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl.) and interior spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss x engelmannii Parry ex Englem.) following removal of the residual stand. Six treatment regimes were examined: windrowing, broadcast burning, and herbicide spraying followed by broadcast burning, with and without disc-trenching. Pine and spruce seedlings were subsequently planted in each regime.
