Silviculture activities, comprising site preparation, planting, direct seeding, stand tending, and pest control, are summarized for each province and territory and for Canada for 1975–76 to 1985–86. Silviculture activities have increased steadily relative to the area harvested. The basic area data on site preparation, planting, and direct seeding have been further refined with more complete information on site preparation application and silviculture success rates. Information on success rates indicates that approximately 68% of the area harvested is adequately reforested, with natural regeneration accounting for 74% of this reforestation. Stand tending has increased more than any other silviculture activity.
