Description: Researchers at Blodgett Forest Research Station, University of California, are studying giant sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum [Lindl.] Buchholz) growth under both even-age and selection management in relationship to the presence of several shrub species and five native conifers. The sequoias are also being studied under several types of site preparation, vegetation control techniques, and stand densities. Seven management units are described. In virtually all situations, early (first 18 years) height and diameter growth patterns of sequoia equal or exceed those of native conifers.
