    Order seedlings no later than the fall before planting season. Select the proper seedling, species, seed zone, and size for each site. Douglas-fir (western Oregon) and pondero-sa pine (eastern Oregon) are common species, but there is a lot of variation. Please contact your local ODF office for information specific to your site. Step 3: PlantingFile Size: KB. Douglas-fir seedlings were planted in early , and microclimate and seedling performance were monitored through During the growing seasons of –, soil water content was greater and soil temperature was lower under heavy debris than under light by: 4.

    Trees growing in open habitats, especially younger trees, have branches much closer to the ground. Coast Douglas firs are the faster-growing and larger of the two varieties, and they commonly grow up to feet (76 meters) in old-growth forests and can reach five to six feet ( to meters) in diameter.

Differences in resistance to cold of seedlings grown in the warm and cool regimes varied by species and type of damage.

Canadian Journal of Forest Research. A series of more detailed growing regimes were published by the University of Idaho Forest Research Nursery between and for ponderosa pine, western white pine, western larch, Douglas-fir. In all three species, maximum heights of seedlings were attained in the hot regime, whereas stem diameters were similar under the hot and warm regimes.

Dry weight increment was greatest in the warm regime. The cool regime was suboptimal for all aspects of growth. Seedlings grown in the hot regime were least resistant to cold in early by: 6. of 97 results for "douglas fir growing regime for container-grown douglas-fir seedlings book Skip to main search results Amazon Prime.

It can grow to feet tall; it is the second tallest growing conifer after the coast redwood. Douglas Fir Seedlings, approx ″ tall. Douglas Fir have been planted as lumber and timber stock for decades, and established themselves early in the 20th century as one of the primary species grown as Christmas trees.

Today Douglas Fir are almost universally harvested from tree farms, not from the wild. Rake up twigs, cones and excess needles under Douglas fir trees each spring and after harsh windstorms to keep the surrounding yard and garden area looking tidy. Leave a layer of needles under the trees as mulch where rhododendrons, azaleas and other plants that thrive in acidic soil make up a shade garden beneath the fir's branches.

Minimize drying and water loss by limiting exposure to sun and wind. Sprinkle with water occasionally if drying is apparent.

Roots must breathe: do not leave water in the bag or immerse the trees in water or mud. At the planting site, protect seedlings from direct sunlight and freezing temperatures. And we’ll stay connected well beyond planting to ensure your satisfaction with our top-quality seed and seedlings.

About Our Seed and Seedlings Since the s, our scientific research has helped create some of the most successful working forests in the world, available to you today in Weyerhaeuser seed and seedlings.

Douglas fir is a big tree that grows to over feet when mature. The straight trunk can grow to four feet in diameter and sometimes even twice that wide. The trees are long lived as well. When you are planting a Douglas fir tree, keep in mind that these giants often live years. Besides Douglas fir, other possible names include Doug-fir, false spruce, red fir, Oregon pine, Douglas pine, yellow fir, and Douglas spruce.

Pseudotsuga menziesii var. menziesii is the coast Douglas fir. Pseudotsuga menziesii var. glauca may be called either the Author: Vanessa Richins Myers. Planting: Plant your Douglas Fir in a spot in your yard that gets at least 6 hours of sun each day. Well-drained soil is also ideal.

To plant, dig a hole in the ground that is two times as large as the root ball. Place the tree in the loose soil and press the soil down until the tree's roots /5(3).

How to Germinate Douglas Fir Seeds. The coast redwood is the world's tallest tree, but the coast Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is a close second, with the tallest specimens reaching heights.

of 1-year-old container northern red oak seedlings equaled or exceeded that of 2+0 bareroot seedlings, as did relative height growth (figure 5).

Taprooted species, such as hickory, that are challenging to grow as 2+0 bareroot stock (Luna et al. ), may respond well to container culture. Figure : Kas Dumroese, Thomas D. Landis. Mycorrhizal and nonmycorrhizal container-grown Douglas-fir (Pseudotsugamenziesii (Mirb.) Franco) seedlings were outplanted on dry, burned-over sites in eastern Washington.

Prior inoculation of seedlings did not significantly increase survival or height growth, but biomass increment during the first growing season was substantially by: (Pseudotsuga menziesii – coastal) Species code Abbreviation for each seedling species.

PRT uses a two-letter code in upper case; e.g. PL = Lodgepole Pine.: FC. Our recommended stock sizes are listed below, with product Products are defined by the combination of Species, Type, Size, Age, and SoP. codes, average height and root-collar diameter.

You can learn more about these specifications on. Thin the plants down to one per container and move the pots into a shade-house with 30 percent shade after 4 to 6 weeks.

Protect the plants from wind and wildlife. During the main summer growing season use a balanced fertilizer applied to each container.

At the end of the growing season, use a finisher formulation of fertilizer. The Douglas fir is characterized by a cone shape and bluish-green colored needles that can grow to be up to 1 1/2 inches long. Because of its uniform shape, Douglas fir .After growing in the greenhouse for a year, the seedling is extracted from the container, root pruned at 5 inches and transplanted in a nursery bed at approximately six seedlings per square foot.

As with the 1+1, the root pruning and transplanting generates a larger caliper stem and more mass in. Douglas-Fir transplants best when balled and burlapped and has a moderate growth rate. It tolerates pruning and shearing but will not tolerate dry soil for extended periods. Protect from direct wind exposure for best appearance.

Some occasional watering in summer dry spells will help the tree stay vigorous, especially in the southern end of its range.
