    The “long-term stable state” is the stand condition which is normally achieved following years without unnatural disturb-ance. The Pacific silver fir series exists wherever the long-term stable vegetation will have at least 10 percent cover of fir. Contin-uing on to more severe environments, the mountain hemlock series exists. These stands resulted from the first extensive plantings of this species in the Pacific Northwest. Data from acre plots in these plantations were compared to those from matched plots in adjacent, naturally regenerated stands with the same history of logging, wildfire, and absence of further siviculture after regeneration.

Regeneration can be either natural or planted. Forest overstory. Typically dominated by western hemlock, Douglas-fir is usually present and occasionally codominant. Western redcedar, Sitka spruce and red alder may or may not be present as minor components. Forest understory.

The understory is often sparse due to the dense canopy of western hemlock.

Filled triangles are forthe first year after by: capturing natural stand mortality with repeated entries to remove small amounts of scattered wood; and the attempt to gain an early return on in-vestments often results in a negative cash flow (LeDoux and Brodie ).

Western hemlock-Sitka spruce forests are economically important in the Pacific Northwest. They are highly. James Barbour's 38 research works with citations and 2, reads, including: Socioeconomic Constraints to Biomass Removal from Forest Lands for Fire Risk Reduction in the Western U.S.

Notably, from a structural standpoint, trees can be alive or dead and standing or down. Some forests, such as mature (> 80 years) Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii)/western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) in the Pacific Northwest are comprised of a continuous, multilayered canopy from the ground up—shrubs, lower, mid, and overstory strata.

Fruiting bodies and forest floor samples were collected and analyzed for N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Mn, and Na content in red alder, Douglas-fir, western hemlock, and Pacific silver fir ecosystems in.

net stand growth may be negative. The structure of late-successional stands is variable because of species composition, soil drainage, and the effect of chance damage from wind, insects, or other factors. Most trees in a typical old-growth stand are western hemlock. Relatively few Sitka.

Terpene fluxes from foliage equal approximately 1% of the net carbon loss from the forest. Modeled estimates based on physiological measurements show gross primary productivity (GPP) to be about 22 Mg C m−2 y−1. The stand is dominated by evergreen conifer species including Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirbel) Franco), the oldest and largest trees in diameter and height, and western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg).

Average tree heights are 52 m for Douglas-fir and 19 m for western hemlock (Ishii et al ). in the Pacific Northwest Yuzhen Li, Eric C. Turnblom, and David G. Briggs Abstract: To examine the effects of density control and fertilization on stand growth and yield of young Douglas-fir.

The cumulative net cubic-foot yield of the unthinned control at age 42 was greater than the total yield of any of the thinning treatments.
