The Relationship between Douglas-Fir Graft Compatibility and Wood Specific Gravity
Abstract:The linear correlation between graft compatibility and wood specific gravity was computed for 50 Douglas-fir clones. No significant correlations at the 0.0.5 level were found between graft incompatibility and juvenile wood (rings 4-11), adult wood (rings 50-57), or approximate tree average (rings 4-11 plus 50-57). Lack of correlation discourages use of specific gravity as an aid in selection of graft-compatible plus-trees.
