Title: Yield tables for managed stands of coast Douglas-fir.

Author: Curtis, Robert 0.; Clendenen, Gary W.; Reukema, Donald L.; DeMars, Donald J.;

Date: 1982

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: Yield tables generated by the stand simulation program DFSIM (Douglas-Fir SIMulator) are presented for a number of possible management regimes. These include a “normal” yield table; tables for stands planted or precommercially thinned to 300 and 400 trees per acre; tables for commercially thinned stands with and without prior commercial thinning; and tables illustrating the effect of fertilization with nitrogen. Guides are presented for number of trees to be planted or left after precommercial thinning and expected time of first commercial thinning.

These tables can be used as aids in choice of management regimes, guides to stocking control, and as a partial basis for estimating probable yields of future managed stands. Their limitations arise mainly from limitations of the basic data used in construction of DFSIM. Users are cautioned on some misinterpretations.

Keywords: Yield tables, simulation, growth models, fertilization (forest), thinning effects, Doug las-fir (coast), Pseudotsuga rnenziesii
