Project Code: WEYDV-02-027
Area:Field Operations
Sponsor:Weyerhaeuser Canada Ltd.

The Project’s objective was to encourage the development of mixedwood stands by planting white spruce in the understory of deciduous stands. The intent was to expedite the development of a second crop in the understory of these deciduous stands. There were 18,450 seedlings planted in 6 different deciduous stands within Weyerhaeuser’s Edson and Drayton Valley FMA’s. A further 18 blocks were laid out but planting was delayed until 1999.
