Description: The 15-year growth response from a levels-of-growing-stock study in an even-aged western larch (Larix occidentalis Nutt.) stand in northeastern Oregon, first thinned at age 33, showed that trees growing at lower stand densities grew more rapidly in diameter but did not grow faster in height than trees in high density plots. Both basal area and total cubic volume increment increased as stand density increased. Despite the large reduction in volume increment at the lower densities, however, most of the wood is concentrated on fewer, faster growing trees that can reach usable size sooner.
Keywords: increment (stand volume), even-aged stands, stand density, thinning effects, growing stock (-increment/yield, western larch, Larix occidentalis
