GENGYM: A variable density stand table projection system calibrated for mixed conifer and ponderosa pine stands in the Southwest

Publications Posted on: February 26, 2019
A computerized growth and yield model based on a variable density stand table projection system using 1-inch-wide diameter classes has been developed for projecting expected stand conditions in southwestern mixed conifer and ponderosa pine stands, including the effects of dwarf mistletoe. Stand management options include both even-aged and uneven-aged cutting methods.

Managing western white pine plantations for multiple resource objectives

Publications Posted on: May 11, 2018
Western white pine (Pinus monticola Dougl. ex D. Don) continues to be one of the most important coniferous tree species growing in Northern Rocky Mountain forests. Because large wildfires occurred early in the 1900s, many plantations of western white pine with varying levels of resistance to blister rust (Cronartium ribicola Fisch.) were established.

Management of spruce-fir in even-aged stands in the central Rocky Mountains

Publications Posted on: December 09, 2016
Potential production of Engelmann spruce and subalpine fir in the central Rocky Mountains is simulated for vario.us combinations of stand density, site quality, ages, and thinning schedules. Such estimates are needed to project future development of stands managed in different ways for various uses.
