We have recently completed a spacing project on one of our old cutblocks on Goat Mountain, logged in 2004. Approximately 21 hectares was treated. The favorable growing site had allowed for many seedlings to take off causing an excess of regenerating trees, which was in turn causing them to compete with one another. Spacing the block removed the excess trees, providing more sunshine and nutrients for the leave-trees. The increased space will allow for accelerated tree growth, ensure long term forest health, and promote strong, well-structured trees.
