In a study funded under the FRDA, FERIC and CFS established research plots for the silvicultural assessment of a vegetation-management trial in Nelson. FERIC conducted productivity assessments of three cutting attachments for Husqvarna clearing saws: the Maxi 200, Multi 300 and Multi 255-4. Pretreatment vegetation and post-treatment seedling damage were examined by PFC researchers. This report summarizes the first-year results. Follow-up revegetation and crop growth response will be monitored and reported by PFC.
