Thinning in Mature Douglas-fir Stands in Southwest Oregon: A Case Study

This publication is part of the Alternative Forest Management series. It describes a case study on thinning in the mature Douglas-fir stands common to interior southwestern Oregon, many of which have become very dense and are at risk of loss due to wildfire, drought, and insect attack. Following a wide thinning from below, nearly all the trees in the study responded with increased growth and improved resistance to stressors.
