The aim of this Project was to partially fund the reclamation/reforestation of previously reforested cutblocks destroyed in the 2002 Talbot Lake Wildfire.
Specific objectives included the purchase of sufficient white spruce seedlings, and the subsequent planting of approximately 1282 hectares located in three commercial timber licenses.
Planting stock [White Spruce SB – 410’s] was ordered/grown over the Fall & Winter of 2002/03, and subsequently 1252.4 ha. were planted in the fire area over the period of June and July 2003. In all 2,185,504 seedlings were planted at an average planting quality of 95%.
Project results are summarized in a six page report entitled "Reforestation of Cutblocks Destroyed by the Talbot Lake Wildfire", prepared by Bruce Avery, and dated January 19, 2004.
