Abstract

Survival and growth of three indigenous conifers, planted in the Clay Belt, Abitibi, northwest Quebec, during 1960 to 1962. Results of the study indicate black spruce (Picea mariana Mill.) and white spruce (Picea glauca Moench.) were the most promising species. Planted jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) was flot only affected by higher mortality and lower growth rate than jack pine growing in nearby natural stands, but was also more susceptible to attack by the pitch nodule maker (Petrova albicapitana Busk.), when growing in pure artificial stands, causing heavy damage and deformation to trees.
