Wildlife use of cavity tree clumps in clearcuts by Robert Cameron( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was done to examine wildlife use of cavity tree clumps in recent clearcuts in Nova Scotia to help identify whether clumps were used and what vegetative characteristics influence use. Study sites were located in central Nova Scotia, consisting of 26 clearcuts between 2 and 5 years old. Clearcuts ranged in size between approximately 10 and 30 ha. One hundred and thirty-two clumps of trees of varying area, tree species composition, tree size, and juxtaposition within the cuts were selected for study. Clumps had at least ten trees and were no larger than 2 ha

Wildlife use of forested corridors in clearcuts by Robert Cameron( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Strips of forest in a clear-cut connecting two other wooded lands are defined as wildlife travel corridors. This report describes field studies carried out in Nova Scotia to determine the extent of wildlife use of corridors and the vegetative characteristics that influence use. Twenty sites with forested corridors in clear-cuts were selected for study in seven eastern counties. Snow surveys of wildlife tracks were conducted in the corridors between December 1993 and March 1994. Tracking was also done in adjacent clear-cuts and adjacent uncut stands for comparative purposes. Average snow depth, available browse, utilized browse, and vegetative features of the corridors were measured. Correlations are noted between track abundance and such parameters as cover type, riparian versus non-riparian location, tree height, and degree of corridor exposure. Management implications are also noted
Lysimeter studies to evaluate the impacts of intensive harvesting and site preparation methods on site quality : an establishment report by D. G Kingston( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concern about the possible deleterious impacts of whole-tree harvesting on soil nutrients and site quality, combined with the increased trend toward whole-tree harvesting in the Maritime Provinces, led the Canadian Forest Service to initiate lysimeter studies described in this report. The studies were designed to evaluate the possibilities of soil degradation due to harvesting, site preparation methods, and planting of different tree species. The studies were conducted at four Nova Scotia locations representing different hardwood and softwood stands growing on some representative soil types and site classes. This report includes descriptions of the experimental set-up, stands, and soils on each study site. Appendices include tables of estimates of total biomass on site and biomass removed by whole-tree harvesting, estimates of nutrients and of increase in nutrient removal due to harvesting, and pH and moisture content field capacity at the four sites
Nova Scotia's forest management strategy by Nova Scotia( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Nova Scotia Forest Management Strategy focuses on increasing forest volume available for harvest and improving quality through an intensive management approach. It promotes the use of a wide range of silvicultural treatments on Crown, large private, and small private woodland holdings. This document describes the basic elements of the strategy, provides background on the province's forest industry and wood fiber supply/demand, describes the management options available to the province and their implications, and outlines the elements of sustainable forestry that have been incorporated into the strategy

Silvicultural control of Sirococcus shoot blight in young red pine plantations in Nova Scotia by Canada/Nova Scotia Cooperation Agreement for Forestry Development. 1991-1995( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sirococcus shoot blight, caused by the fungus Sirococcus conigenus, is the most serious forest pest problem in red pine plantations. Red pine trees of any size can be affected and entire plantations have been killed by this disease in Nova Scotia. This report describes trials conducted to test and demonstrate whether sirococcus shoot blight can be controlled by pruning in red pine plantations in Nova Scotia. Four plantations having different degree of blight infection were used as test sites. One plantation with a high infection rate was used as control, and the others were subjected to treatments consisting of pruning, removing, and burning all infected shoots and branches. Plots were then assessed annually during fall to early spring from 1989 to 1992. Recommendations for red pine management are made based on the results
