Clear-cut in CLM5

Hi All,

 I have been trying to do a clear-cut for an evergreen tropical PFT and then simulate the evergreen tropical PFT with the equilibirum value of soil carbon/nitrogen. I'm setting all of these variables for carbon and nitrogen in the restart file to zero: vars <- c("leafc", "leafc_storage", "leafc_xfer", "livestemc", "livestemc_xfer", "livestemc_storage", "deadstemc", "deadstemc_xfer", "deadstemc_storage",         "livecrootc", "livecrootc_storage", "livecrootc_xfer", "deadcrootc", "deadcrootc_storage", "deadcrootc_xfer","frootc", "frootc_storage", "frootc_xfer",        "gresp_storage", "gresp_xfer", "leafn", "leafn_storage", "leafn_xfer", "livestemn", "livestemn_xfer", "livestemn_storage", "deadstemn", "deadstemn_xfer", "deadstemn_storage", "livecrootn", "livecrootn_storage", "livecrootn_xfer", "deadcrootn", "deadcrootn_storage", "deadcrootn_xfer","frootn", "frootn_storage", "frootn_xfer", "retransn"). I'm wondering if this is the standard method to perform a clear-cut. When I set the above vars to zero, the LAI doesn't develop at all. I have tried with the local-scale and large-scale climate forcings and the results don't change. I have also tried turning some of the "key CLM5" functions off and again the LAI is zero. Basically, the evergreen tree isn't growing from "seedling phase".   Look forward to hearing your thoughts.   Best,Ashehad
