Mark record


Silviculture activities including site preparation, planting, seeding, stand tending, and pest control are summarized for each province and territory and for Canada for 1975-80. The level of silvicultural activity is discussed in relation to the harvesting rate and the productive forest land base. It is concluded that the levels of site preparation, planting and seeding in Canada are inadequate if a policy of sustained yield management is assumed and that the practice of stand tending is still minimal in Canada as a whole.
