Morphological Development of Field-Planted Western Hemlock Seedlings from Various Dormancy Induction Treatments

1990: Roseburg, OR
Abstract.—Western hemlock seedlings from four dormancy induction treatments (i.e. long-day dry, long-day wet, short-day dry, short-day wet) were planted on a coastal reforestation site in British Columbia and monitored for morphological development over two growing seasons. Short-day wet treated seedlings had the greatest incremental height growth and lowest stem units cm over two growing seasons. Short-day treated seedlings had the least needle damage after two years in the field. Seedlings from all treatments had good root development and this was reflected in high survival (i.e. approx. 90%) after two field seasons.
