Forest harvesting and fire suppression are the main factors contributing to white pine regeneration problems in eastern Canada. Researchers with the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) of Natural Resources Canada, in collaboration with Parks Canada and Université Laval, have carried out studies to assess the effects of prescribed burning on white pine regeneration and balsam fir mortality.
