Mark record


Repeated harvesting of young aspen sucker stands at the Petawawa Forest Experiment Station indicated that biomass production cannot be sustained on rotations of up to ca. 10 years. Results for longer periods are not yet available but growth trends point to at least 15 years as the minimum rotation age.
