Effects of Plant Date and Nursery Dormancy Induction on Field Performance of Douglas-Fir Seedlings in Western Oregon

The effects of nursery dormancy-induction treatments and planting date on growth and survival of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii [Mirb.] Franco) seedlings were tested on six sites in western Oregon, selected across a geographic moisture gradient. Seedlings were outplanted on eight dates between mid-August 2005 and mid-January 2006 and four dates between August 2006 and January 2007. Two dormancy-induction treatments were tested: shortened daylength and moisture stress.
