Abstract

Silviculture activities including site preparation, planting, direct seeding, stand tending, and pest control are summarized for each province and territory and for Canada for 1975-76 to 1983-83. As the period 1975-76 to 1979-80 is covered in a previous report, comparisons are made between that period and the incremental 1980-81 to 1982-83 period to gauge the progress of silvicuture activities. The level of silviculture activities is also discussed in relation to the harvesting rate. The basic area data on site preparation, planting, and direct seeding have been refined with the use of information on site preparation application and silviculture success rates. It is concluded that increased silviculture effort is warranted if the area of forest land reverting to an inadequately reforested state is to be reduced.
