Laminated Root Rot in a Western Washington Plantation 8-Year Mortality and Growth of Douglas-Fir as Related to Infected Stumps, Tree Density, and Fertilization by Richard E Miller( )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A 4-year-old Douglas-fir plantation in the western Washington Cascades was monitored for 8 years after fertilization with potassium (K), nitrogen (N), and K+N to determine fertilizer effects on rates of mortality from laminated root rot (LRR) and other causes relative to a nonfertilized control. Each element was applied at a rate of 300 lb/acre on and around 0.2-acre plots replicated seven times in a randomized complete block design. Cumulative mortality from LRR did not differ significantly among fertilizer treatments, and losses were strongly related to density of infected stumps from the previous stand (r2 = 0.74). Mortality from disease and other sources accelerated during the 8 years of monitoring. Average tree growth and stand volume were greatest in treatment N and were reduced where N was combined with K. Continued monitoring is needed to identify potential longer term effects of the fertilizer treatments on susceptibility of Douglas-fir to LRR and Armillaria spp

Assessment of soil disturbance in forests of the interior Columbia River Basin a critique( )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We present results and inferences from 15 soil-monitoring projects by the USDA Forest Service (USFS) after logging in the interior Columbia River Basin. Details and comments about each project are provided in separate appendixes. In general, application of past protocols overestimated the percentage of "detrimentally" disturbed soil in harvested units. Based on this past monitoring experience, we recommend changes to existing protocols, and further validation and revision of USFS numerical standards for judging change in soil quality and for defining "detrimental" soil disturbance. A proposed visual-assessment protocol was tested at some locations by comparing results of its application among observers, and by verifying visual assessment of compaction against quantitative estimates of bulk density. Consistent disparity between experienced and recently trained observers emphasizes the need for more intense training to teach individuals to recognize and correctly classify types and severity of soil disturbance. Because growth response of trees to soil disturbance is so variable and dependent on climate and other nonsoil factors, designating some visual classes as "detrimental" to soil productivity is problematic. We propose an alternative key for visually classifying a wider continuum of soil disturbance without assigning consequence for productivity to any class
Growth of Douglas-fir near equipment trails used for commercial thinning in the Oregon Coast Range( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soil disturbance is a visually apparent result of using heavy equipment to harvest trees. Subsequent consequences for growth of remaining trees, however, are variable and seldom quantified. We measured tree growth 7 and 11 years after thinning of trees in four stands of coast Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii (Mirb. Franco)) where soil disturbance was limited by using planned skid trails, usually on dry soils. The three younger stands had responded to nitrogen fertilizer in the 4 years before thinning, but only one stand showed continued response in the subsequent 7- or 11-year period after thinning. The most consistent pattern observed was greater growth of residual trees located next to skid trails. The older stand also showed greater growth in trees located next to skid trails, whereas tillage of skid trails failed to benefit growth of nearby residual trees for the first 7 years after tillage. We conclude that traffic that compacted soil only on one side of residual trees did not reduce growth of nearby trees

Comparative effects of urea fertilizer and red alder in a site III, coast Douglas-fir plantation in the Washington Cascade Range( )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Five randomly assigned treatments were used to quantify effects of adding varying numbers of red alder (Alnus rubra Bong.) or nitrogen (N) fertilization on growth of a 10-year-old conifer plantation at a medium-quality site in the western Washington Cascade Range. Zero, 20, 40, and 80 alder trees per acre were retained along with about 300 conifers per acre. Nearly all conifers were coast Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii (Mirb.) Franco). A fifth treatment substituted N fertilizer for N-fixing alder. Changes in average tree height, and in numbers of trees, basal area, and volume per acre between plantation ages of 10 and 27 are compared. In pure conifer plots, gross volume growth averaged 26 percent greater on fertilized than nonfertilized plots, indicating measurable benefits of additional N. On both fertilized and nonfertilized plots, an average of 13 percent of the original conifers died. Retaining 20, 40, or 80 alder per acre (7, 13, and 27 percent of the associated conifer trees per acre, respectively) was associated with reduced numbers of Douglas-fir by about 19, 5, and 17 percent, respectively, in the next 17 years. Mortality and growth of Douglas-fir were not related to alder density, but losses of Douglas-fir were especially large on plots where relatively large red alder (20 per acre) were retained. Neither total stand nor conifer yields were changed by retaining alder. Additional comparisons are needed at other locations, especially those with known N deficiency
