Six, recent clear cut areas were selected in the Douglas-fir
zone of the Western Cascade Range of Oregon to determine the
environmental and nutritional effects that snowbrush has on the establishment
and growth of Douglas-fir seedlings.
One thousand eighty milacre sample plots on the six clear cuts
were used to...
The ecological and silvicultural importance of snowbrush,
Ceanothus velutinus, in the areas west of the summit of the Oregon
Cascades was studied. Particular attention has been given its nitrogen-
fixing ability under both field and greenhouse conditions.
On west slopes of the Oregon Cascades snowbrush occurs above
2, 500 feet...
Bioassays using red alder and snowbrush plants grown in soils collected
from a clearcut, a young Douglas-fir plantation, and an old-growth stand were
conducted. Sites are located at the Andrews Experimental Forest, Oregon. In
the first bioassays, more alder than snowbrush plants survived and nodulated.
Of the plants that survived,...
