ABSTRACT
The article offers information on growing Douglas fir in New Zealand. The tree species is more shade tolerant than the common pines and will invade shrublands. Research has showed that Douglas fir needs 40 percent of full light to achieve the consistent growth needed to reach canopy level. The best growth for the species is often found in cooler, inland hill and high country areas, where the surrounding vegetation cover and grazing levels can be light. Fertilizing alone will increase competition from resident vegetation and thereby reduce risk of wilding spread.
