As its principal objective, this Project’s intent was to reduce inter-species competition to established conifer regeneration through the aerial application of the herbicide "Vantage".

The aerial spraying program was carried out in early August of 2003. In all three MOF Blocks were treated and comprised 331 hectares in total. Direct costs amounted to $215.66 per hectare.

Project results are summarized in a brief six page report entitled "Notikewin M.O.F. Stand Tending – 2003", prepared by Steve Blanton, and dated May 2004.
