Additional information about stand origin:
Brief silvicultural objective:
Remove the standing dead and Eastern Larch Beetle infested tamarack trees and to thin denser areas of living tamarack trees to make them more resilient to future attacks.
The primary soil type present within the tamarack stand is “F135A – Hermantown-Canosia-Giese depressional complex.” This is a combination of several soil types, generally different loams with a high water table and poorly drained. Harvest operations are restricted to frozen ground conditions.
