Natural regeneration is the most important factor in survival and sustaining forest parks. This study was conducted to compare the regeneration frequency of trees species at distances of 15, 40 and 80 mfrom roads considering tourist pressure in Alang Dareh forest park. Results show that number of high seedling in low tourist pressure area was more than that of area with severe tourist pressure. Moreover, total number of seedlings in low tourist pressure area was more than that of area with severe tourist pressure. Lowest number of seedlings was recorded at distance of 80 m from road edge because of the tourist density and consequently soil compaction.
Key words: Tourist pressure, regeneration, forest road, Alang Dareh park.
