Proceedings of Past Forest Nursery Association Meetings:

Performance of Conifer Stocktypes on National Forests in the Oregon and Washington Coast Ranges
Duddles, Ralph E.; Owston, Peyton, W.
1990: Roseburg, OR
During the 1970's, container and
bareroot stocktypes of conifer timber species were
widely tested in the Coast Ranges of Oregon and
Washington. Both survival and total height varied
widely in tests on national forests. After 4 to
5 years, neither stocktype survived consistently
better than the other. However, on these relatively
moist sites with lush development of competing
vegetation and high animal populations, larger
nursery stock (represented by bareroot seedlings)
tended to grow taller than stock that was initially
smaller. Site factors seemed to influence survival
and growth more than did the original stocktype.
