    Douglas Fir Trees, Facts & Information on the Douglas Fir Tree. Here is some general information on the douglas-fir tree. Douglas-fir is the English name applied in common to evergreen coniferous trees of the genus Pseudotsuga in the family Pinaceae. There are five species, two in western North America, one in Mexico, and two in eastern Asia. We studied understory composition in thinned and unthinned Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco)/western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.) stands on 28 sites in western Oregon. These stands had regenerated naturally after timber harvest, 40–70 years before thinning. Commercial thinning had occurred 10–24 years previously, with 8–60% of the volume removed from below.

    Thirteen paired tree stands (one thinned: 12 stems/ m 2: one unthinned: 22 stems/ m 2) were surveyed on two occasions. All stands were >10 ha and 52 years old on average. Thinned stands had been thinned 5–11 years prior to the study. Openings in . Douglas fir trees (Pseudotsuga menziesii) are also known as red firs, Oregon pines and Douglas r, according to Douglas fir information, these evergreens are not pines, spruce, or even true they are tall, beautiful conifers native to the Pacific Northwest.

      Douglas Fir trees have a lifespan of years and are one of the tallest species of tree in the world. There are various types of lumber that are currently used for fencing, furniture, woodwork, decking, garden box, etc. Thinning increases average diameter growth.

THIRTEEN YEARS OF THINNING IN A DOUGLAS-FIR WOODLAND By Norman P. Worthi ngton The impressive, integrated products industries and large forest ownerships of the Douglas-fir region are well known.

Sometimes overlooked are owners of woodlands of under acres, the average holding being 35 : Norman P. Worthington. OF THINNING • Better forest health • Bigger trees, sooner • More profit potential • Less fuel for fires • Increased habitat for wildlife • Aesthetics.

Nine years after variable-density thinning (VDT) on the Forest Ecosystem Study, we examined low understory vegetation in 60 plots of eight stands (four pairs of VDT and control).

We compared native, exotic, ruderal, and nonforest species richness among the stands. We used clustering, ordination, and indicator species analysis to look for distinctive patches of plant associations.

course of a few years, but long be- fore the trees would reach again. Evergreen monocultures are only the best woodland in the far north where other trees cannot survive, and even then there should be multiple species.

Also, thinning douglas fir forest isn't just best for people, it is best for all plants except douglas fir and most animals. Average growth of Douglas-fir increased in all thinned stands, but growth of the largest Douglas-fir trees was only accelerated in the heavy thin.

After thinning, the canopy of all thinned treatments was initially more open than the control, but after years the light thin was no.

Large-scale commercial thinning of young forests in the Pacific Northwest is currently promoted on public lands to accelerate the development of late-seral forest structure for the benefit of wildlife species such as northern spotted owls (Strix occidentalis caurina) and their prey, including the northern flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus).

Measurements of vegetation 5–7 years after treatment revealed that thinning created substantial differences in overstory cover, tree density, and tree basal area among the treatments (Davis et al.,Davis and Puettmann, ).Percent cover of low shrubs (⩽2 m high) was reduced about 40% (P 2 m Cited by: Pseudotsuga menziesii is an evergreen conifer species in the pine family, is native to western North America and is known as Douglas fir, Douglas-fir, Oregon pine, and Columbian pine.

Despite its common name, it is not a true fir (i.e. it is not a member of the genus Abies).There are three varieties: coast Douglas-fir (P. menziesii var. menziesii), Rocky Mountain Douglas-fir (P Family: Pinaceae.

Douglas Fir is a wound al, social, emotional. It would be in your best interest and that of our planet to keep this grandmother fir. You can make infused oil with the needles. It is anti-fungal, heals minor wounds and soothes the nervous system.

I also make Douglas Fir Vinegar which contains vitamin C. This book is cute. Not really my kind of book because it's a little sweet for me, but overall enjoyable. I liked the unique elements like the Douglas Fir, the MC being a gardener, the cute neighbours aspect. I seen the twist of fate coming a mile away, which kind of worked for this book.

Everyone was cute, everything was cute/5. Introduction. Much is known about the effects of thinning on stand characteristics such as volume growth and rates of overstory tree mortality, as well as on individual tree characteristics such as diameter growth and live crown ratio (Smith, ).Several long-term studies have related tree and stand development to such measures of stand density as basal area, stand density index (Reineke Cited by: Douglas Fir Use Book Edition [West Coast Lumberman] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.
