Three methods of seeding white spruce—in the humus layer, in moss, and on scalps—at the base of aspen were tested in dense young and open mature stands. Results indicated that scalps prepared at the base were more favourable for germination than either of the other two seedbeds tested, and for seedling survival more favourable than control scalps prepared between trees.
