Title: Historical growth plots in the Pacific Southwest

Author: Rabin, Lawrence A.; Oliver, William W.; Powers, Robert F.; Ritchie, Martin W.; Busse, Matt D.; Knapp, Eric E.;

Date: 2009

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: In the past, researchers from the Pacific Southwest Research Station (PSW) undertook forest growth studies to evaluate how best to manage timber resources. However, historical and future data collected at PSW growth plots also have the potential to increase our understanding of the ecological processes occurring in our forests and shed light on national issues of importance. This report provides information on the history, geography, plant species studied, installation, and measurement interval of each plot along with a list of publications arising from data gathered at these plots. This will enable current and future researchers to reidentify these plots and continue research at these locations.

Keywords: Growth and yield plots, levels of growing stock (LOGS), initial spacing, methods of harvest cuttings, long term soil productivity (LTSP), Garden of Eden
