This project, initiated in 1988 in the Horsefly Forest District, has two parts. Part 1, conducted in 1989, is a retrospective survey of all sites operationally seeded before 1987. The survey documented vegetation cover as well as stocking and growth of planted crop trees on 11 sites. Part 2 is a research and demonstration trial. Seeded and unseeded treatments were established on three mechanically scarified backlog sites, including one in the ESSF and two in the ICH zones. All sites in this trial were seeded with the same seed mix and seeding rate, at the same time of the year (fall). The effects of broadcast fertilizer application on establishment and growth of seeded grasses and clovers were also assessed.
