Abstract:
Studies were made of an 80—acre tract of big tree forest which was logged about 1875 for sugar pine, ponderosa pine, and big tree. Disturbances related to logging created conditions ideal for establishment of trees, and a dense second—growth forest has developed. Incense—cedar and white fir are the most abundant trees, but the rapidly growing big trees now dominate in the early successional stages, but now the many species of shrubs and herbaceous plants present occur in low frequency.
