The influence of competition and species mixture on plantation-grown white spruce: Growth and foliar nutrient response after 20 years
A 20-year-old experimental white spruce plantation was used to identify key stand (neighbourhood competition) and soil (physical and chemical properties) factors influencing spruce growth (Periodic Basal Area Increment) ...
Differences in extrinsic tree quality and value of fibre production following alternative vegetation management treatments in Northwestern Ontario
We examined differences in stem quality, and volume and value of fibre produced by planted white spruce 16 years after vegetation management treatments in northwestern Ontario. Forest Vegetation Simulator (FVSOntario) was ...
Cutting versus herbicides: Tenth-year volume and release cost-effectiveness of sub-boreal conifer plantations
Few cost-effectiveness studies of vegetation management in conifer plantations are reported in the literature. This study provides follow-up cost-effectiveness analysis from research conducted at the Fallingsnow Ecosystem ...
