Broadcast burning slash favors Black Spruce reproduction on organic soil in Minnestoa

Broadcast burning slash favors Black Spruce reproduction on organic soil in Minnestoa

For. Chron, 47: 1, 33-5

Burning trials were made on clear-felled areas near Big Falls, N. central Minnesota, and regeneration of Picea mariana was sampled 2 to 6 years after burning. Methods used were: (1) broadcast burning of unpiled slash on large patches and wide strips during summer; and (2) progressive burning of piled slash on small patches and narrow strips during winter. Natural seeding was relied on except on the large patches, where ca. 100, 000 seeds/acre were broadcast with a hand seeder.
