Abstract

Researches the effects of different management regimes of second-growth lodgepile pine (Pinus contorta) plantations on the understory vegetation. The understory vegetation studied included 54 herb and shrub species identified as potential non-timber forest products. Fertilizer treatments increased the growth of the understory vegetation, including Achillea millefolium. These results suggest that understory non-timber forest products can be comanaged with timber operations.
