Object & Deliverables


The purpose of this Project was to improve growth rates in young forest stands and recover volume that would normally succumb to competition.

The objectives of this Project were to ensure the successful completion of thinning operations, to ensure that contractors are within acceptable limits of the density targets prescribed in the thinning plans and to ensure that thinning operations are modified in areas where stand conditions vary from those outlined in the block prescription.


Final Report

Crop plans and prescriptions were completed for candidate stands in Forest Management Units W9 and S2. A total of 559.8 hectares were treated under this Project.
