The buried-inarch technique was attempted in April on 4 clones of mature coastal Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco. By December, 4 had rooted out of 15 survivors from one clone, and 3 out of 16 for another. Previous attempts with these clones by conventional methods had completely failed. Possible improvement of technique is noted.
