Commercial Thinning in AECL - 130-211

Description: Red pine is an ideal species for planting in plantations on sandy sites in the Great Lakes - St. Lawrence forest. A pioneer species, red pine does not require partial shade, is relatively pest-free, grows rapidly with good form, and provides high value products if managed correctly. This study sought to compare the growth and yield of red pne under a variety of spacing and thinning treatments on two plantations a few hundred metres apart near Chalk River, Ontario.
