Abstract

The continuing spread of butternut canker poses the greatest threat to the survival of the butternut, which has been protected under the Species at Risk Act since 2005. Furthermore, growing conditions that are favourable to the health and the establishment of the butternut are increasingly rare. The following are possible solutions suggested by Canadian Forest Service (CFS) researchers for helping this endangered species.

Furthermore, growing conditions that are favourable to the health and growth of butternut trees are increasingly rare. This fact sheet presents potential solutions to counteract this disease.

Branching Out is a series of plain language fact sheets describing Laurentian Forestry Centre research projects.
