Description: Subalpine fir (Abies lasiocarpa [Hook] Nutt.) is a wide-ranging, high-elevation species in the interior of British Columbia. It is commonly harvested for lumber, but replanting of it is limited. Some reticence is based upon wood quality and rate of growth, but there are also seed and nursery culturing difficulties. This study investigated seedling growth traits of 111 provenances grown in four nurseries. Considerable variation in growth potential was found. The strength of nursery effects and correlations of nursery height to height growth at 5 years in the field are reported. Recommendations for use of genotypes more amenable to nursery culture are presented.

Keywords: subalpine fir, provenance effects, nursery culture
