Title: Ten-year history of an Oregon coastal plantation.

Author: Ruth, Robert H.;

Date: 1957

Source: PNW Old Series Research Paper No. 21: 1-15

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Very productive forest land, capable of producing 1,000 to 1,500 board-feet of softwood per acre per year, is common in the "fog belt" along the Oregon Coast. Good forest management requires that this valuable land be kept in constant production with minimum time lost during the regeneration period. Also, if the land is to be managed for conifer production, prompt regeneration is essential to keep seedlings ahead of fast-growing native hardwoods and brush. One way to meet these objectives is to plant seedlings for the next rotation as soon as possible after harvesting mature timber. There are, however, many unanswered questions regarding plantation establishment and factors affecting growth and survival.
