Douglas-fir Graftability and Wood Specific Gravity
Abstract:The graft survival rate of 15 clones under practical orchard conditions in the Row River seed orchard was compared with their ortet's wood specific gravity. The simple linear regression analysis showed a close correlation (r=0.90) Further studies could well prove that wood specific gravity is a valuable indicator for good graftability while selecting parent trees for establishing a clonal seed orchard.

- The Journal of Forestry is the most widely circulated scholarly forestry journal in the world. In print since 1902, the Journal has received several national awards for excellence. The mission of the Journal of Forestry is to advance the profession of forestry by keeping forest management professionals informed about significant developments and ideas in the many facets of forestry: economics, education and communication, entomology and pathology, fire, forest ecology, geospatial technologies, history, international forestry, measurements, policy, recreation, silviculture, social sciences, soils and hydrology, urban and community forestry, utilization and engineering, and wildlife management. The Journal is published bimonthly: January, March, May, July, September, and November.
