Performance of Conifer Stocktypes on National Forests in the Oregon and Washington Coast Ranges

During the 1970's, container and bareroot stocktypes of conifer timber species were widely tested in the Coast Ranges of Oregon and Washington. Both survival and total height varied widely in tests on national forests. After 4 to 5 years, neither stocktype survived consistently better than the other. However, on these relatively moist sites with lush development of competing vegetation and high animal populations, larger nursery stock (represented by bareroot seedlings) tended to grow taller than stock that was initially smaller. Site factors seemed to influence survival and growth more than did the original stocktype.
