Aspen Clearcut with Significant Paper Birch Regeneration Despite Minimal Paper Birch Reserves (USFS-SNF)
Harvest the mature Aspen before it deteriorates and loses commercial value, while increasing diversity to push for a more resilient stand.
This project's objective was to provide a readily accessible demonstration site to observe the operational challenges of managing dwarf mistletoe infested black spruce stands.
Monitor the spread of dwarf mistletoe, Arceuthobium pusillum, within the stand
Reforest a healthy black spruce even-aged stand that is 95% stocked at 1500 trees per acre after a clearcut.
