Object & Deliverables


There are many cut over areas where there is a serious aspen ingress problem. This aspen ingress has reduced the productivity of young viable conifer stands. Stand tending using cleaning and thinning will increase the productivity of the pine.

Final Report


Stand tending (cleaning and pre-commercial thinning) of satisfactorily regenerated cutblocks harvested between 1969 and 1974 was conducted with a total of 325 hectares being completed. The Project also included aerial reconnaissance of stands that may be future candidates for tending.
