Got Nature? Blog: A variety of different types of regeneration openings can be created on properties to provide different structures and species of plants that are suitable to a wild variety of wildlife species. In this episode of Woodland Stewardship for Landowners, Purdue Extension forester Lenny Farlee talks about two types of regeneration openings – clearcuts and shelterwoods. These two techniques produce an even-aged forest, where all the plants regenerating in that area are approximately of the same age.
