Response of Western Larch to changes in stand density and structure

Response of Western Larch to changes in stand density and structure

USDA Forest Service Research Note, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station (PNW-258): 11

Data are presented after 5 years, to show the response of a 55-year-old, even-aged stand of Larix occidentalis, in E. Oregon, to thinning from above (removal of dominants and codominants) and from below (removal of suppressed and intermediate trees), both to a range of stocking intensities (b.a. 50-170 ft2/acre).
