Description: A 51-yr record of observations in stands planted at six spacings, ranging from 4 to 12 ft, illustrates clearly the beneficial effects of wide initial spacing and the detrimental effects of carrying too many trees relative to the size to which they will be grown. Not only are trees larger, but yields per acre are greater at wide spacings.
Keywords: Plantation spacing (-growth, stand density, stand development, Douglas-fir, Pseudotsuga menziesii
