In Quebec, an efficient approach is now available for treating thousands of hectares of hardwood stands previously considered unharvestable because of the low density of mature trees. Researchers with the Canadian Forest Service of Natural Resources Canada and FPInnovations–Feric have developed a multi-treatment shelterwood approach that can be used to achieve this goal.
