Includes growth data for plantation-grown crops on 4 sites at 30 years, showing m.a.i.'s from 4.2 to 8.7 cu.m./ha. Underplanting with Abies sp. after thinning (B or C grade) or a mixture with Alder are recommended. Cuttings (20-50 cm. long) planted on weeded land give a 90-95% stocking with 1st and ...
