WOOD PRODUCTS VALUE: Sitka spruce is the most important timber species in Alaska .The wood, with its high strength to weight ratio, is valuable for use as turbine blades for wind-driven electrical generators, masts for sail boats, ladders, oars , boats, and racing sculls .Sitka spruce's high resonant quality makes it valuable in the manufacture of piano sounding boards . Lodgepole pine and Sitka spruce cones have thinner scales than those of Scots pine and Norway spruce, respectively, so are probably easier to exploit for . Timbers were Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) and Japanese larch (Larix kaempferi), treated using the Thermowood process, the Platowood process or the Lignius process. These processes have been described previously and are explained in the COFORD Connects Note.

In 39 plots, fewer than five trees with 13 cm at DBH were in each plot, so these were expanded to ha, and one plot was expanded to ha. Ponderosa pine forests were Fig 1.

Interesting Facts. The Queets Spruce, located in Olympic National Park, is the largest Sitka spruce in the world with a trunk diameter of ft ( m) at breast height, trunk volume of 11, cu ft ( m 3), and a height of ft ( m).; The Sitka spruce Carmanah Giant, located in Carmanah Walbran Provincial Park, is the tallest in Canada with a height of ft . Abstract. A long-term field experiment was established in in the Stuart Dry Warm Sub-Boreal Spruce (sbsdw3) biogeoclimatic variant in the Vanderhoof Forest District to study the interactions between Sitka alder (Alnus viridis (Chaix) DC. ssp. sinuata (Regel) A.&D. Löve) and lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud.) in a cutblock. We examined the effects of low-impact broadcast-burning and disk-trenching planting position (control, hinge, trench) on soil characteristics and lodgepole pine foliar nutrition and growth over two decades at a subboreal site in British Columbia, Canada. Broadcast burning had virtually no effect on either the bulk density or chemical properties of soil. In contrast, significant Cited by: 4. Lodgepole pine is commonly associated with meadows (Rundel et al. ). Although lodgepole pine has well developed water regulation mechanisms, it typically occupies areas with at least seasonally wet soils. Annual precipitation in the lodgepole pine zone averages from to mm (30 to 40 in) annually, mostly as snow.
