RM-RP-33: Growing stock levels in even-aged ponderosa pine
Myers, Clifford A. 1967. Growing stock levels in even-aged ponderosa pine. Res. Pap. RM-RP-33. Fort Collins, CO: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experimental Station. 8 p.
Growth of the most widely distributed pine in North America is under joint study by the western Forest and Range Experiment Stations of the U. S. Forest Service. Young, even-aged ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) stands are being examined over a wide range of tree sizes, stand densities, and site index. The single plan that co-ordinates activities of the four Stations is an example of how the growing stock problem can be handled for a widely distributed species. The wide range in treatments should provide data needed to answer the questions that arise in evaluation and application of multiple use management of ponderosa pine forests.
