Studies on measurement of solar radiation beneath the forest canopy were initiated three years ago in balsam fir forests in Quebec. The paper briefly discusses the reasons for studying problems of radiation in the forest and is based upon what is known of the natural development of balsam fir. Means of increasing growth and securing proper regeneration by manipulating the overstory are discussed.
