    dense even-aged stands hemlock often crowds out both Douglas fir and Sitka spruce. It is commonly observed that where spruce occurs in such stands the density is less. Spruce ordinarily grows to larger sizes than hemlock, and over long periods tends to reduce it to a sub- ordinate position or eliminate it.

As logging causes residual stands of old growth to become smaller and more insular, their value to Sitka black-tailed deer (Odocoileus hemionus sitkensis) during the winter is expected to   Accounting for carbon gains and losses in young-growth forests is a key part of carbon assessments.

A common silvicultural practice in young forests is thinning to increase the growth rate of residual trees. However, the effect of thinning on total stand carbon stock in these stands is uncertain.

In this study we used data from long-term growth and yield plots to quantify the carbon stock   banks of southeastern Alaska forests and how seedling banks might be affected by partial cutting.

We studied the Prince of Wales flying squirrel (Glaucomys sabrinus griseifrons) in temperate rain forest of southeastern Alaska to provide the 1st quantitative estimates of demography from southeastern Alaska and test predictions of the hypothesis that Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis)-western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla) forest is primary habitat for G.
