Title: Shade improves survival rate of outplanted 2-0 red fir seedlings

Author: Gordon, Donald T.

Date: 1970

Source: Res. Note PSW-RN-210. Berkeley, CA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 4 p

Station ID: RN-PSW-210

Description: Effect of shade on 2-0 red fir seedlings outplanted on the Tahoe National Forest, central California, was studied by comparing five treatments: no shade, low shade for 1 year and for 2 years, and high shade for 1 year and for 2 years. Seedlings benefited from shading-even under apparently excellent survival conditions in the first season. The extra cost of artificial shades may be worthwhile under some conditions.
