In order to quantify the stump anchor capacity of small second-growth Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii [Mirb]. Franco) trees, load tests to failure were conducted on 18 stumps from trees 7 to 16.5 in dbh. The tests produced ultimate loads that varied as the square of the tree diameter. However, the ultimate load typically occurred at stump system deformations that were far in excess of that which would be considered failure of a stump anchor. A hyperbolic equation was used to describe the load-deformation behavior of each stump tested and was generalized to describe all the test results. West. J. Appl. For. 2(3):72-80, July 1987.
