Mark record


Several million Norway spruce seedlings have been planted in private forests in Quebec over the past 30 years.

This species has been highly successful on account of its ability to adapt to conditions in Quebec, its rapid growth rate and its high productivity. However, the popularity of Norway spruce underwent a sharp decline when woodlot owners and forest managers discovered white pine weevil damage in plantations.
