Description: Silviculturists of the Olympia Forestry Sciences Laboratory, Pacific Northwest Research Station, have joined with foresters of the Washington State Department of Natural Resources and scientists of University of Washington and University of Idaho to establish a long-term comparison of silvicultural regimes for regeneration and management of young growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) forests.

In this report we review the concerns that led to the study, the study design and methodology, and expected expansion over the next few years. We document establishment of the first replicate (Blue Ridge) of the study, and we give some initial results based on the first several years of work at that installation.
