Monitoring of woody species regeneration was done in 2003, 2005 and 2007 on 48 subplots of 116 m2 on pasture, fern, and shrub sites. <br/> Half of the subsamples were randomly selected and manually treated by cutting back all competing herbaceous species with a machete<br/> every 4 months from 2003 to 2005. Competing species refers to dominant, exotic and aggressive species such as grasses (S.<br/> sphacelata) in the Pasture site, and exotic fern (P. arachnoideum) in the Bracken and Shrub sites, woody native species were not removed.
