Description: Highlights are presented from a large cooperative study to determine the combined effects of nursery cultural practices on the initial size and subsequent field performance of 2+0 Douglas-fir seedlings. The study involved seven sources of stock produced in three different nurseries and field plantings made over 3 years on 28 sites in southwestern Oregon. Seedbed density had more effect on the size of seedlings produced and on subsequent 4-year field survival and growth than did variations in irrigation frequency or undercutting and wrenching.
