In terms of any of the goods and services usually aimed for under multiple-use management, the spruce-fir type is the largest and most valuable forest resource in the central Rocky Mountains. Engelmann spruce (Picea engelmannii Parry), the most desirable timber tree in the type, needs mineral soil seedbeds and partial shade for best establishment and early growth. Spruce can be harvested and regenerated by all silvicultural systems except the seed tree method--subject to limitations imposed by stand conditions.
