Abstract

Interest in managing broadleaf and mixedwood stands has grown. The alternative to mixedwood management, is the current practice of eliminating the broadleaf stand component. There is little information on how to manage these productive stands. The project will determine the relationship between stand density and i) wood quality, ii) white pine weevil and wood quality, and iii) growth and yield. Results will modify existing policy, provide cost-benefit information by treatment, foster better site utilization, and enhance structural and species diversity. Outcomes should facilitate forest certification. A strategic plan for SBS mixedwoods will be available by 31 March.
