Abstract

The principal objective of the study aimed at establishing formal relationships between stand growth dominance and mode of inter-tree competition for stands dominated by different tree species. We selected permanent sample plots (PSP) that were established in eastern Canada and which were dominated ...

Abstract

Vegetation management is crucial to meeting the objectives of forest plantations. Following public hearing processes, chemical herbicides were banned on Crown forest lands in Québec (Canada) in 2001. Release now mainly relies on mechanical treatments. Our objectives are to review the historical...

Abstract

Forest managers in Ontario (Canada) need reliable guidelines for promoting desirable species mixtures to enhance economic and ecological diversity. The objective of this project is to advance knowledge of boreal mixedwood (BMW) management by testing techniques for achieving productive mixtures of...

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

A questionnaire was sent out in 1944 to 70 foresters, on silvicultural requirements of Balsam Fir, White Spruce, Black Spruce, Jack Pine, White Birch and Aspen. A summary of the replies, in so far as they deal with optimum silvicultural conditions for the 6 species, has been given previously. The...

Abstract

The natural regeneration of felled areas depends largely upon the conditions brought about by logging and the inherent characteristics of the tree species concerned. In order to forecast how different forest species will react to a given form of cutting it is necessary to know as much as possible...
