Abstract [en]

Recently concerns of regeneration of valuable deciduous trees in the landscape have arisen. Several studies and historical reviews points towards forest management actions and moose browsing as the main factors affecting the regeneration. This although deciduous trees generally occur in regenerating production forests of Scots pine, Norway spruce and lodgepole pine. This study aims to evaluated factors affecting occurrence of young deciduous trees in young managed forest stands in northern Sweden. Deciduous trees mainly occurred in higher level in mixed forest stand, where the moose browsing on production trees and thus probably also on the deciduous as well tended to be lower. Clearing actions where more sparse in mixed forest stands as well. Based on this, occurrences of regenerating deciduous trees in younger forest stands could be favoured by a mixed forest management, but forest stand characteristics must also be considered when preserving young deciduous tree.
