DescriptionPort-Orford-cedar is of interest to ecologists and foresters, but little information is available on its growth, its genetic variation, or the field performance of families selected for resistance to root disease. Survival, damaging agents, and growth were evaluated for nine families at three outplanting sites in south coastal Oregon. Survival was excellent on two sites. Family differences were observed in growth rates, foliage dieback, and tendency to form multiple stems after browsing. Mean tree height 8 growing seasons after planting was 2.6 m; the heights of the tallest trees on one site were > 5.5 m.
