Title: Douglas-fir growth and yield: research 1909-1960.

Author: Curtis, R.O.; Marshall, D.D.;

Date: 2004

Source: Western Journal of Applied Forestry. 19(1): 66-68

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Systematic research on growth and yield of Douglas-fir began in 1909. This line of early research evolved over time and culminated in publication of USDA Bulletin 201, The Yield of Douglas-fir in the Pacific Northwest. B201 had an enormous influence on development of Douglas-fir forestry and was arguably the most influential single research publication ever produced in the Pacific Northwest. We review the evolution of this research and some associated topics, and the role of the major personalities involved.

Keywords: Pseudotsuga menziesii, growth, yield table, site index
