Plain Language Summary

There is a lack of scientific knowledge on the growing conditions of black ash, a species of cultural importance to Indigenous communities, and its resilience to global changes. The objective of this research project is to co-develop scientific knowledge on site conditions (e.g., soil properties, texture, drainage and companion species) that promote optimal black ash growth and wood quality for traditional activities of importance to Indigenous communities. The results generated by this project will support these communities and guide site preparation management decisions for the 2 Billion Trees (2BT) program.
