Effects of Strangulation of Douglas-Fir Seedlings by Rigid Tags
Abstract:Tags tied around stems of transplanted Douglas-fir seedlings caused formation of canker-like knots. These knots served as centers for the initiation of new roots in some of the seedlings. Only seedlings that formed new roots this way were able to survive after out-planting.
