Abstract

In large areas of the boreal mixedwoods of eastern Canada, conventional forestry practices dominated by large-scale clearcutting have led to an increase in early-successional trembling aspen (Populus tremuloides Michx.) stands and a decrease in late-successional mixedwood stands. Partial harvesting ...

Abstract

Partial harvesting is thought to result in more structurally diverse forest stands, providing a promising alternative to clearcutting and helping balance timber production and biodiversity conservation. Evidence for this hypothesis is based mostly on understory vegetation communities, with little...

Abstract

Multi-cohort-based forest management has been proposed as a strategy to conciliate wood supply and biodiversity conservation objectives. At the stand-level, the approach involves using partial harvesting to generate structurally complex stands, notably in terms of tree age, size and species...

Abstract

The short-term response of wildlife to clear-felling was studied in 4 blocks (52-114 km2) in boreal forests that were logged, while protecting the regeneration, in 100-250 ha clustered patches. The most common tree species were Picea mariana, Pinus banksiana, Abies balsamea, Betula papyrifera and ...

Abstract

In a silviculture experiment in east central Maine, natural regeneration was sampled to measure the effects of: (1) a range of partial harvest intensities, and (2) repeated partial harvest at one intensity. Under the first objective, 5 treatments were compared with residual basal areas ranging from ...

Abstract

Details the organization and some first results of experiments in the mixed woods slope type (Spruces 32, Balsam Fir 29, Birch and Poplar 39%) of the Lakehead region (L. Superior). Harvesting for increased regeneration of the Spruces against hardwood competition is the chief aim. The industry,...
