- ... One of the five tallest tree species, Pseudotsuga menziesii has enormous economic and ecological importance, but rainforests dominated by this species are not as well understood as their drier montane counterparts. We climbed and measured 30 trees up to 97 m tall growing in coastal forests of the Olympic Peninsula and northern California to quantify structural attributes—leaves, bark, cambium, sap ...

- ... Heartwood rot (a fungal disease) has the potential to significantly reduce the sandalwood oil production of Santalum album. With new plantations being established with sandalwood oil as the major product, it is imperative to know the consequences of routine form-pruning in tropical areas. Examining pruning wound responses in 1 and 5-year-old trees at the end of the dry and wet seasons, it was poss ...
