Title: Increment and mortality in a virgin Douglas-fir forest.

Author: Steele, Robert W.; Worthington, Norman P.;

Date: 1955

Source: PNW Old Series Research Notes No. 110, p. 1-6

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Is there any basis to the forester's rule of thumb that virgin forests eventually reach an equilibrium where increment and mortality approximately balance? Are we wasting potential timber volume by failing to salvage mortality in old-growth stands?
