Confederation College Forestry Centre, Forintek and Outland Reforestration Ltd. have secured a grant of $154,000 from the Living Legacy Trust (LLT).
The fund is aimed at evaluating enhanced growth, wood quality, stand value and financial returns in response to pre-commercially thinning (PCT) jack pine stands in the Thunder Bay area.
The study will evaluate some of Bowater’s earliest jack pine PCT operations in the Dog River-Matawin Forest Management Unit, located between Quetico Provincial Park and Thunder Bay. It will attempt to enhance this silvicultural practice through scientific evidence in order to maximize returns.
