Strip cut understory protection trial
Project

Strip cut understory protection trial

Protecting understory white spruce during removal of overstory aspen will ensure the utilization and release of advanced spruce growth, which will result in a shortened rotation, reduction of reforestation cost, and eventually an increase of timber production per unit of land.
