The Vermillion River Observation Area is one of 15 5-square-mile areas established in Quebec between 1948 and 1954. The purpose of these areas is to study forest development after logging and/or fire.

A one-percent systematic sample in the form of 66-foot square line plots was established in each area and remeasurements are at 10 year intervals.

The first remeasurement of the plots in jack pine stands at Vermillion River are reported herein. The remainder of the area is reported separately.
