Object & Deliverables

The study examined the use of pulsed aerial spray treatments to create a mixedwood mosaic of spruce and vertically structured aspen/spruce patches.

Data were collected for this project in answer to the following questions:

  1. What is the overall effect of patch treatments on coverage of the blocks by spruce and aspen-dominated areas?
  2. How is spruce performing in the treated and the untreated portions of the blocks, and in completely untreated blocks.
  3. How does patch size influence performance of the spruce within treated areas?
  4. Is spruce growth in the untreated ground influenced by the treated bands?
  5. When using glyphosate herbicide , is there any effect of the width of untreated patches and bands in the vigour of the residual aspen?
