Description: A 43-year-old, even-aged stand of advance reproduction of grand fir and Shasta red fir in central Oregon responded to release and thinning with diameter and height growth two to three times the prerelease rate. The response began immediately after the overstory was killed with 2,4-D. Diameter growth during the second 5 years after release increased significantly over that of the first 5 years. Differences in spacing had no effect on growth. Increased growth after release suggests that saving advance true fir reproduction is desirable under certain conditions.
