The regeneration of hardwoods requires that stands be capable of providing an adequate number of regenerating trees to the appropriate species. Regeneration can be conducted through sprouts from stumps that were produced from the cutting of trees two to ten inches in diameter, the release of seedlings and saplings that are present in the stand prior to the regeneration cut, sprouting of roots, the development of new seedlings from seed already present in the forest floor prior to harvest and seed that is deposited onto the site after the regeneration harvest. Such methods are used by hardwood species to create new trees in the regenerating stand.
