Lafleche, V., Ruel, J.-C., Archambault, L. (2000) Evaluation of careful logging to preserve advance growth for the mixed wood stands of the balsam fir/yellow birch bioclimatic domain in eastern Quebec, Canada. Forestry Chronicle, 76(4):653-663.

Résumé

The effect of careful logging to preserve advance growth was studied in mixedwood stands of the balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) - yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis Britton) eco-climatic domain in eastern Quebec, Canada. The study is based on 19 sites harvested five years earlier, In each cutover, 50 sample plots have been established to quantify the abundance of regeneration five years after logging. This cutting method proved to be ineffective in limiting the invasion of competiting species such as mountain maple (Acer spicatum Lam.) and pin cherry (Prunus pensylvanica (L.), which fully occupied the sites with 25 092 and 5619 stems ha(-1) respectively. Balsam fir was abundant after five years in the study area with 13 500 stems ha(-1) but two thirds of the seedlings were smaller than 30 cm. Soil disturbance was minimal, probably Limiting the establishment of yellow birch, which reached a density of 1416 stems ha(-1) five years after logging. Height growth projection of regeneration over five years showed that competiting species should still dominate the sites. Commercial species should improve their position but would still account for only 40 % of dominant stems. It is therefore unlikely that this regeneration method will be successful in bringing back the initial stand composition in a short period of time. The next stands will probably contain a high proportion of intolerant species with a dominance of paper birch (Betula papyrifera Marsh.) over yellow birch. In the near future, cleaning operations should be conducted to reduce the impact of competing vegetation and make sure that balsam fir will remain in the main canopy.
