    Alaska Specialty Woods Inc. has emerged as a world class, custom shop soundboard producer. We are also the largest producer in the world that uses % salvage sourced old growth Sitka Spruce timber that is procured locally. We are also the largest soundboard producer in the state of Alaska. Aged wood has long been regarded as a premium wood fiber. In two branch bag studies conducted on mature trees, it was demonstrated that twice-ambient levels of atmospheric CO2 enhanced rates of photosynthesis in current-year needles by 50% in Norway spruce (Roberntz and Stockfors, ) and % in Sitka spruce (Barton and Jarvis, ).

Field Performance in Southeast Alaska of Sitka Spruce Seedlings Produced at Two Nurseries John C. Zasada, Peyton W. Owston, and Dennis Murphy Abstract A study of nursery stock performance was conducted on four sites in the Tongass National Forest in southeastern Alaska: two sites at Fire Cove (Ketchikan Ranger.

Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) seedlings were raised in containers at nurseries in Petersburg (P), Alaska, and Coeur d'Alene (C), Idaho, using seed appropriate for the 3 areas (4 sites) in the Tongass National Forest, SE Alaska, where the seedlings were planted in June Seedlings from P were taller (33 vs.
