Object & Deliverables


The purpose of this Project was to improve the forest resource through stand tending in blocks that had a high level of deciduous competition, which was impeding the growth of conifer crop trees.

Project objectives included reducing inter-specific competition, and creating an environment where conifer crop trees can maintain free – to – grow standards.

The field activities related to this Project were carried out over the month of October 2005. During this period, twenty blocks were mechanically tended comprising 299.7 hectares in total. Brush saws were utilized throughout. Direct treatment costs amounted to $531.45 per hectare.

Final Report

Project results are summarized in a twenty-six page report entitled ” Final Report Stand Tending 2005 CTL F06 – 0011 Blocks”, prepared by Allen Plantinga, and dated February 15th, 2006.
