Project Code: BUCH-01-001
Area:Field Operations
Sponsor:Buchanan Lumber

The primary goal of this Project was to increase the regenerated area of previously logged cutblocks not adequately restocked in FMU S1.

Objectives included eliminating competing vegetation, site preparing 81.5 hectares and planting of about 115,000 white spruce and lodgepole pine seedlings.

Over the late winter of 1978, the vegetative competition was piled and site prepared utilizing a ripper plough equipped D-9 Caterpillar. Three blocks comprising an area of 81.5 hectares were planted with 115,560 white spruce and lodgepole pine seedlings at an approximate density of 1,400 seedlings/ha.
