Yellow-cedar (Yc)

The major limiting factors that can be addressed by stock type selection for Yc are snowpress, and light browsing. In areas where browsing is severe, even larger stock types may not be effective.

Like the Abies species, Yc requires a 12-week seed treatment. Because seed supply is lower than demand, the species is also raised as rooted cuttings (CRC). In the nursery, CRC may display juvenile foliage and poor stem form, but these do not persist in plantations.
