Title: Periodic Annual Diameter Increment After Overstory Removal in Mixed Conifer Stands

Station ID: RP-PSW-238

Description: Diameter growth rates of understory trees were measured for periods both before and after overstory removal on six study areas in northern California. All the species responded with increased diameter growth after adjusting to their new environments. Linear regression equations that predict periodic annual increment of the diameters of the residual trees after treatment are presented for the six species in the study areas.

Key Words: California red fir, California white fir, Douglas-fir, incense-cedar, increment (diameter), Jeffrey pine, northern California, ponderosa pine, sugar pine
