Project Code: MWI-01-021
Area:Field Operations
Sponsor:Millar Western Forest

The purpose of this Project was to improve the condition of blocks by releasing crop trees from competing vegetation, ensuring free to grow standards were achieved and the species mix and quality of trees in the regenerating blocks was improved.

The objective of this Project was to apply Release ® herbicide to competing vegetation and allow crop trees to release. A total of 112.8 hectares were treated with resulting densities higher than the expected 3,000 to 4,000 stems per hectare.

The resulting densities were 8767 and 5759 stems per hectare for the two blocks treated. No further treatments were planned for these blocks but Millar Western would develop recommendations from these results to incorporate into future stand tending herbicide projects.
