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.
