Tenth season measurements of a five-species demonstration at Nahmint Lake, on central Vancouver Island, indicated that differences in height and volume growth were evident. Growth differences at age 10 were two-fold for height and five-fold for volume between the slowest and fastest-growing species. In decreasing rank order, Douglas-fir was followed by western hemlock, western redcedar, and the true firs. Stem form problems were not prevalent on the site.
