Abstract

Long-term sustainability of forest resources is in question given wide-spread use of conventional clear-cut silviculture. In response, variable retention (VR) harvest has been increasingly promoted as a landscape-based approach to enhance sustainability by maintaining biodiversity and other...

Abstract

Radial patterns of modulus of elasticity (MOE) were examined for white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) and trembling aspen (Populus tremuoides Michx.) from 19 mature, uneven-aged stands in the boreal mixedwood region of northern Alberta, Canada. The main objectives were to (1) evaluate the...

Abstract

Carbon isotope ratio (δ13C) has been used as an indicator of water stress because plants discriminate less against 13C when under stress. The depth-to-water (DTW) topographic index provides an estimation of soil moisture based on topographic position and other characteristics of a site. To evaluate ...

Abstract

The Hotchkiss River Mixedwood Timber Harvesting Study developed new approaches to harvesting systems for western Canada's boreal mixedwood forests. Conventional harvesting equipment was used to test 11 harvesting and silvicultural systems over a 530-ha site. These include one- and two-pass modified ...

Abstract

This paper describes the differences between expert and public perceptions of plantation forestry and calls for greater public participation in the development and establishment of plantations. The debate over the social acceptability of varying land-uses is essentially a debate over how land is...

Abstract

Intensifying forest management has the potential to alleviate pressures of competing land uses, maintain global competitiveness in the face of increasing exotic plantations, and increase the value of the boreal forest resource. Yet, such initiatives have largely been stymied in Canada's boreal...

Abstract

Trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) density and growth were assessed 9-12 years after stand establishment to determine whether mechanical site preparation (MSP) affects crop tree quality. Study sites were either treated with disc trenching or ripper ploughing and planted with white spruce...

AbstractFull Text

This study was conducted during 1999-2002 in Alberta, Canada, to examine the early growth of aspen [Populus] and white spruce [Picea glauca] in planted mixtures varying in species composition, and compare their productivity. Treatments include combinations of five species composition, two moisture...

Abstract

We describe a range of approaches for managing boreal mixedwood stands composed of trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) and white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) in British Columbia and Alberta. Successful management of these complex forests requires a combination of well-defined...

Abstract

Seventy 1- to 28-year-old clear felled were sampled to characterize post-harvest vegetation development and to determine the effect of mechanical site treatment and Picea glauca (white spruce) crop-seedling planting on regenerating boreal forest stands in the John D'Or-Wood Buffalo National Park...
