Method of Correlating Soils with Douglas-Fir Site Quality
Determination of timber site quality on denuded areas is a desideratum for foresters and for landowners and managers. This article reports a method of correlating soil characteristics with site quality of Douglas-fir in Lewis County, Washington. The method makes possible the prediction of growth rates, within narrow limits, for this species in this area. The authors' method may be applicable, with slight modification, to other areas and species.
