DescriptionSurvival and growth of planted Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) saplings and associated shrubs were observed for 6 years after seven release treatments had been applied, side by, side on four areas in the Coast Range of Oregon. Four times as much Douglas-fir volume as in the control was produced by one manual cutting of shrubs, which also represented the best economic return. Diversity of competing species temporarily increased after the release treatments.
