Containerized seedlings of Englemann Spruce (Picea engelmannii), sugar pine (Pinus lambertiana), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), western redcedar (Thuja plicata), and western hemlock (Tsuga heterphylla) transplanted in the early fall and later I the early spring were compared for differences in stem diameter, height, root area, and shoot area. Fall-transplanted mensizesii and the Thuja plicata showed an increase in stem diamter of 13% (2.0 mm) and 4% (0.4 mm) respectively. Fall-transplanted seedlings developed larger root systems picea englelmannii by 18%, Pinus lambertiana by 48%, Pseudotsuga menziesii by 58%, and Tsuga heterophylla by 47%.
