Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Douglas-firs from 91 seed sources in North America were evaluated after 5 and 6 years in 15 common-garden tests in the mountainous regions of northwest and north central Spain. Analyses of tallest trees showed that most of the sources of highest potential for reforestation in Spain are found in regions where the Pacific Ocean air mass dominates climate. Fast growers came from coastal slopes of the Coast Ranges from northwest California to the Georgia Strait of southwest British Columbia and inland slopes of the Olympic Mountains and Coast and Cascade Ranges facing the Puget Trough in western Washington and Willamette Valley in northwest Oregon. Slow growers came from latitudes south of 44° and north of 50° N, high altitudes west of the crest of the Cascade Ranges, and regions east of the crest where the continental air mass dominates climate.
