Density management to improve growth, yield and quality of paper birch stands in interior BC
|Author(s): Simard, Suzanne (BC Ministry of Forests)||Subject: Biodiversity, Ecology, Forestry, Inventory, Landscape ecology||Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program|
We seek funding to evaluate/extend 11-year growth, yield, crown and mortality responses in a paper birch thinning experiment established in 1991 in interior BC. The experiment tests four birch densities on four sites that vary in quality in a 4x4 factorial experiment (n=3). There are no similar studies in B.C., and the information is vital to predicting and modeling yield in pure birch and mixed birch/conifer stands. This proposal is for 11-year measurements, data analysis, and reporting in a journal article and extension materials. The data will be used to help validate the TASS sub-module for paper birch.
