    The original data, plus some additional data for interior spruce, were re-analyzed to incorporate new techniques into the models. The resulting models for Sitka spruce are more precise than the original models, although the revised models for western hemlock and interior spruce are slightly less precise.   By and large, most Alaskans pay little attention to spruce trees. They grow everywhere, so we tend to tune them out in favor of colorful deciduous .

Aerial seeding sitka spruce and western hemlock on a cutover area in southeast Alaska by A. S. Harris Download PDF EPUB FB2

In western hemlock–Sitka spruce forests in southeast Alaska. By leaving spruce seed-trees, disturbing soil judiciously, planning entries to regulate overstory density to promote seedling establishment, and possibly planting spruce seedlings where the seed source is poor, we believe sizable new cohorts of Cited by: 1.

YIELD OF SECOND-GROWTH HEMLOCK-SPRUCE STANDS Ö GROWTH DIFFERENCES OF SPRUCE AND HEMLOCK Western hemlock does not attain the total height of Sitka spruce at maturity. In the young fast-growing stand, however, the pro- portion of hemlock actually has little influence on the average height of dominants.

The principal tree species in the region are western hemlock—57 percent by volume in mature forests—and Sitka spruce—37 percent. Western red cedar, found only south of Frederick Sound, and Alaska cedar, which occurs throughout the area, together total four percent of the total forest volume (Harris and Farr ).

The effects of partial cutting on species composition, new and residual-tree cohorts, tree size distribution, and tree growth was evaluated on 73 plots in 18 stands throughout southeast Alaska.

These partially cut stands were harvested years ago, when % of the former stand basal area was removed.

Partial cutting maintained stand structures similar to uncut old-growth stands, and the. File FL - Specific gravity of Western Hemlock and Sitka Spruce in Southeast Alaska.

Throughout southeast Alaska, Prince William Sound, Kodiak Island, Kenai Peninsula, and up the northern edge of the range extends just north of Girdwood, you can find Sitka spruce. This is the primary timber tree in Alaska because of its size and for the fact that it produces high-grade lumber for many uses.
