Object & Deliverables

The purpose of this Project is the ground survey of approximately 5,000 hectares of previously aerial inspected cutblocks that were designated as requiring stand tending.

Objectives includes provision of density, stocking, competition, damage & disease, height and diameter information on areas selected for manual tending and to utilize this data to develop follow-up silvicultural prescriptions.

Over the summer & fall seasons of 1999, approximately 4,662 hectares (142 cutblocks) were ground surveyed – from the information obtained decisions will be made as to the need for tending and which specific prescription(s) are to be utilized.
