In January 1964 an assessment of silvicultural problems relating to management of black spruce in Quebec was prepared (Hatcher, 1964). This assessment, made after 5 weeks travel and study in Quebec's Forest Sections B.1a and B.1b, provided much information for use in the preparation of a research program. However, regeneration success or failure in cutovers and burns could not be properly assessed owing to a lack of reliable data.

During the summer of 1964, the author studied regeneration stocking in black spruce cover types, both in logged stands and logged stands that subsequently burned. The aim was to provide data for use in deciding what priority should be given to research in regeneration silviculture in relation to the whole program. The results of the 1964 study are presented herein in tabular form.
