Landowners in southern Ontario have become increasingly interested in afforesting marginal agricultural land. There are few appropriate, up-to-date research studies on afforestation practices to support current practice. Research into the growth and development of forests planted on marginal land has lagged substantially behind forest research in natural settings. Thus an opportunity exists to provide practical and relevant information to landowners to be used in the plantation management planning process.
