Generally, drier sites are occupied by Douglas-fir while western redcedar and western hemlock dominate wetter habitats [10,38,]. Inland, grand fir is most abundant on sites averaging 25 inches ( mm) or more annual precipitation that are either too dry for, or beyond the range of, western hemlock and western redcedar [ 14 ].

Localized allometric models were developed relating tree/biomass components to diameter at breast height (dbh) for coast redwood (Sequoia sempervirens (D. Don) Endl.) from an industrial timberland in northwestern California, USA.

Progress 01/01/11 to 12/31/11 Outputs OUTPUTS: The Pacific Predicting crown weight of coast Douglas-fir and western hemlock book Tree Improvement Research Cooperative has four areas of focus: (1) genetics of wood stiffness in Douglas-fir and western hemlock; (2) miniaturized seed orchards (MSOs); (3) Douglas-fir site characterization; and (4) molecular markers for tree breeding.

The wood stiffness and. As the forest industry in British Columbia becomes increasingly dependent on second-growth timber for its raw material supply, the question of wood quality becomes more relevant. Accelerated growth in forest plantations, coupled with an earlier harvest, will lead to changes in the quality of the timber harvested.

Douglas- fir continues to be the dominant species in many of the second growth stands. Northern portions of the subregion contain mixtures of Douglas- fir, western hemlock and western white pine, with western redcedar and Sitka spruce occurring sporadically, and Pacific silver fir at higher elevations.

Western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) is an important commercial tree species in coastal British Columbia. A series of studies was carried out to further our understanding of western hemlock nutrition, which may ultimately provide for an operational fertilization program involving this species.

Eight immature western hemlock stands were fertilized with additions of N, two levels of P ( and. This study examined the changes in response of first thinning in four Douglas-fir sites in the Coastal Pacific Northwest in multiple positions along stems. Four installations contain one control plot and four thinning plots that were first thinned between 17 to 34 years during todepending on plot relative : David G Briggs, Rapeepan Kantavichai.

Prior to this publication, the equations for the Pacific Northwest (Westside) Douglas-fir and Western Hemlock were from Predicting Crown weight of Coast Douglas-fir and Western Hemlock (Snell and Anholt, RP-PNW, March ).

Ecosystems 7 (5): Abstract. During the 20 th century, the Pacific Northwest (western Oregon and Washington, coastal British Columbia, and southeastern Alaska) produced some of the highest quality timber in North America.

Forests were old and trees were large; wood products from this region were easily distinguished from those made from timber produced in other regions in North by: Figure presents a material balance for the 16 inch Douglas-fir tree with the following as­sumptions: (1) The minimum top diameter is 4 inches ( cm).

The weight of wood and bark in the stem above this point was estimated by sub­stituting this diameter into. Mature Rocky Mountain Douglas-fir is generally more fire resistant than spruces, true firs, lodgepole pine, western hemlock, western redcedar, and western white pine and slightly less fire resistant than ponderosa pine and western larch [,].

In the southern Coast Range of southwestern Oregon, where elk are nonmigratory and typically occupy the same drainage year-round, elk densities decreased curvilinearly as the proportion of old-growth Douglas-fir-western hemlock forest decreased in 18 drainages (r²=, P.

In the forest community below 1, meters, Douglas-fir, lodgepole pine, and western larch predominate. In the valleys, Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir are found.

The somewhat lower and much better watered western valleys of the park support western redcedar and western hemlock. To the breast height age, we added six years for coast Douglas-fir, four years for lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Douglas ex Loudon) and seven for western hemlock to estimate each tree's year of origin.

These numbers were calculated for each tree species from the linear relation between tree height and age taken from young, natural, open grown Cited by: 2.
