Year One Results from the Southern Alberta Silviculture Adaptation Project

Climate change is expected to shift habitats, so identifying tree species well adapted to conditions matching the anticipated climate and planting them outside their native range is essential. The aim of this project is is to evaluate establishment success and growth potential of native (Douglas fir, lodgepole pine, white spruce, and western larch) and three non-native (ponderosa pine, western white pine, and Siberian larch) tree species at various conditions created by three alternative harvesting treatments in southern Alberta, Crowsnest Pass.

This QickNote presents results after one year of seedling growth.
