Traveling across the state, you soon discover that Oregon is home to a wide range of trees. There are 30 native coniferous species and 37 native species of broadleaf trees. Oregon varies greatly in terms of elevation, temperature, wind, rainfall and soil composition. Combinations of all these factors help determine the dominant tree species of an area. This publication is part of the Alternative Forest Management series. It describes a case study on thinning in the mature Douglas-fir stands common to interior southwestern Oregon, many of which have become very dense and are at risk of loss due to wildfire, drought, and insect attack. Following a wide thinning from below, nearly all the trees in the study responded with. Oregon and Gabriel F. Tucker, Castor International, 8th Avenue S.W., Olympia, Washington Overstory Response to Alternative Thinning Treatments in Young Douglas-fir Forests of Western Oregon Abstract An increase in land dominated by young second-growth Douglas-fir forests in the Pacific Northwest has coincided with heightened. Thinning is removing selected trees from a stand to allow others to continue growing. Ordinarily, a woodland manager uses a thinning system that encourages the remaining trees to grow in a manner consistent with the manager’s objectives for those : William H. Emmingham, Daniel Green.

Abstract. Nine hundred and forty permanent to ha plots were established in the Vancouver Forest Region by the B.C.

Much is known about the effects of thinning on stand characteristics such as volume growth and rates of overstory tree mortality, as well as on individual tree characteristics such as diameter growth and live crown ratio (Smith, ).Several long-term studies have related tree and stand development to such measures of stand density as basal area, stand density index (Reineke Cited by: C.
