Term Definition
Regeneration

The next generation of trees in a forest or woodlot. Regeneration usually refers to very young trees (especially seedlings) shorter than six feet tall. Regeneration can be natural (the children of adult trees in the existing woods) or artificial (trees planted by humans).

Riparian

The area surrounding a stream, wetland, or other body of water. These areas often have a high level of influence on the water bodies they are close to, and as a result warrant special protection when harvesting timber.
