Effects of harvest and packing techniques on Douglas-fir seedlings

Foresters in the Pacific Northwest have shown that Douglas-fir [Pseudotsuga menziesii(Mirb.) Franco] seedling survival ray be substantially improved by careful methodology during harvest, storage, and outplanting (Cleary and DeYoe 1982, Cleary et al. 1978, Hermann et al. 1972). Similarly, New Zealand workers have demonstrated increased survival and dramatically increased growth of Monterey pine (Pinus radiata D. Don) seedlings with careful handling (Trewin 1979). This paper is a preliminary report of trials designed to determine if extreme care in harvesting and planting Douglas-fir seedlings will result in significantly improved growth.
