Object & Deliverables

An evaluation of the effectiveness of aerially applied herbicide to protect white spruce tree seedlings from hare damage during peak population cycles, and develop short/long term risk assessment & planning models.


Final Report

The long range planning model indicated reduced future vulnerability of cutblocks to snowshoe hare damage, by continuing fire suppression along with herbicidal application to reduce the deciduous cover.
