dc.description.abstract In 2006 a severe wind disturbance damaged many of the forested areas in Stanley Park. Following the windstorm, windthrown areas were salvage logged to reduce the risk of fire. This study looks to determine how basal area, severity of disturbance, and site series affect the regeneration densities of coniferous and deciduous trees. Different types of analysis were used to determine how each of the different factors affects regeneration density. Results from this study show that as basal area increases, regeneration density for coniferous and deciduous trees increases. There is a higher regeneration density in areas of higher disturbance. As moisture and nutrient levels increase both coniferous and deciduous regeneration density increases. There is lots of opportunity for more research in trying to determine which factors most strongly affect regeneration densities. en
