Field stratification experiments were conducted over 4 years using 2 Douglas fir and 3 ponderosa pine seed collections. the growth of desired fire-adapted or dependent species (Thompson et al. Natural regeneration of ponderosa pine depends on moisture conditions. Since the seed of ponderosa pine of- ten does not germinate until the coming of the summer rains, its vitality is impaired by the usual period of drought between April and by: 7.

Pine germination and establishment is highly dependent on local precipitation and temperature conditions (Schubert,Savage et al., Stein and Kimberling, ), and locally variable summer rains can also influence the distribution of seedling establishment (Pearson,Schubert, ).

Climate may also indirectly influence pine regeneration through effects on overstory. Overcoming temperature-dependent dormancy of southwestern ponderosa pine seed book mean annual total cubic-foot volume increment per acre of southwest ponderosa pine in relation to GSL and site quality for a year rot~tion with a year thinning interval.

For example, Puhlick et al. () found a strong positive correlation of seed tree superiority (i.dominant seed tree) and ponderosa pine seedling densities in unburned areas across Arizona.

Seed Movement with Soil Erosion in southwestern Ponderosa Pine Forests To study the effects of fire and slope on erosion and seed movement, 4 sites were selected based on fire severity (high or low) and hillslope gradient (steep or gentle) with 2 replicate erosion plots per site.

One control plot was constructed in an un-burned area so. Using Table 1 (below), determine the probability of fire-induced mortality for ponderosa pine.

If the percent of crown scorch volume is in the white area, that gives the tree a 50 chance or greater of survival; if it is in the black, there is a 50 or greater chance of mortality. For more information go to After the Burn: Assessing and. of Pinus ponderosa (Dougl.

Climate Past as Prologue for Ponderosa Pines. Release Date: Decem Scientists from the National Park Service and the U. Geological Survey have reconstructed the recent migration history of ponderosa pine trees in the central Rocky Mountains.

Seed dormancy definitions Seed dormancy is a survival mechanism by which seeds can delay germination until the right environmental conditions for seedling growth and development. Seed dormancy is a mechanism that prevents a viable seed from germinating when placed in an ideal environment for germination Reasons for dormancy Seed dormancy Seeds.

The purpose of this paper is to promote a broad and flexible perspective on ecological restoration of Southwestern (U. ) ponderosa pine forests. Ponderosa pine forests in the region have been radically altered by Euro-American land uses, including livestock grazing, fire suppression, and logging.

Cones are ready for collection in October and November when they turn reddish brown. Mature seed is firm and brown in color. Cones should be dried on canvas tarp in a well-ventilated area immediately after they have been collected.

The seeds will drop from the cones as they dry. High-severity fires in dry conifer forests of the United States Southwest have created large ( ha) treeless areas that are unprecedented in the regional historical record.

These fires have reset extensive portions of Southwestern ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Lawson C. Lawson var. scopulorum Engelm. ) forest landscapes. At least two recovery options following high-severity fire are.

When choosing a location, keep in mind that the Ponderosa Pine has a moderate to fast growth rate. It can grow up to feet in height and 45 feet in spread.

This pine can be planted in zones 3 to 6. Thrives in full sun and moist well-drained soils but will tolerate poor soil and drought. How To Start These Seeds. Ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa)—also known as yellow, western yellow, pondosa, blackjack, or bull pine—is one of the most widespread, easily recognizable pines in Oregon and the Mountain West.

Its tall, straight, yellowish to reddish-brown trunks in a park-like setting are a pleasant, familiar sight in many parts of central Oregon.It is also known as western yellow pine, yellow pine, bull pine, and blackjack pine.
