Abstract

An analysis was carried out on some aspects of yield based on data on growth of dominant trees (balsam fir, white spruce, yellow birch) from the western section of the Chic-Chocs Management Unit. Comparison of balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) yields in five growth regions shows that the regions termed "la, lb, lIa, and lIb" have similar annual volume increments in spite of their differences in elevation. This same increment is distinctly smaller in region III, which is located above 600 m of elevation. By grouping 67 research plots according to annual volume increment, nine plot groups were established. The first four plot groups, representing balsam fir, are statistically different in terms of volume yields covering the range from the greatest increment to the smallest. Group 5 reflects the yield of white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) , and Group 6 the yield of yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton). The first six groups are located at elevations below 600 m. Finally, groups 7, 8, and 9 express the yields of balsam fir and white spruce at elevations above 600 m.
