Title: Cold weather damages promising species in the Wind River Arboretum.

Author: Steele, R.W.;

Date: 1954

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 95, p. 1-7

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Before an introduced tree species is. recommended for wide-scale forest planting, its adaption to the local climate and soil should be carefully checked over a long period of years. This need has been clearly demonstrated at the Wind River Arboretum where many introduced species are being evaluated for possible use in plantations. The purpose of this note is to call attention to six of the introduced conifers (table 1) that have been killed or critically injured by extremes in climate before they reached merchantable size or rotation age. Several of these species made satisfactory growth and development for as long as 30 years before they were found to be poorly adapted to the Wind River climate.
