Appendix I. Comparison of tree establishment controls between Mount Rainier (disturbed) and Denali (undisturbed).

TABLE I1. Tree establishment comparison between Mount Rainier and Denali. Note, the lowest two zones (A and B) from Mount Rainier were discounted for the comparison because infilling was so extensive in these zones that only extremely unfavorable sites remained.
