Pamerleau-Couture,E., Krause, C., Pothier, D., Weiskittel, A. (2015) Effect of three partial cutting practices on stand structure and growth of residual black spruce trees in north-eastern Quebec. Forestry, 88(4):471-483. (Scopus )

Résumé

Partial cutting practices are increasingly used in boreal forests for two major reasons: (1) maintaining age structure and tree diameter distribution according to the principles of ecosystem-based management and (2) increasing tree growth by decreasing competition. This study evaluated the effects of three different partial cutting treatments applied to even- and uneven-aged black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) stands in north-eastern Quebec, Canada. The effect of partial cutting was assessed by comparing treated and control plots in terms of age structure, diameter and spatial distribution, amount of deadwood and tree radial growth. Age structure and diameter distribution were not different from control plots after partial cuttings applied in both unevenaged and even-aged stands, but lower deadwood basal area was observed. Tree radial growth generally increased in uneven-aged stands but can be limited by tree age and inter-tree competition. In even-aged stands, tree removalwasmore uniformly distributedandtheoverall reduction in inter-tree competition resulted inanincreased tree radial growth. Overall, these results suggest that the studied partial cuttings were adequate for maintaining structural attributes and increasing tree growth, but adjustments should be made to treatments to increase the amount of deadwood to a level observed in natural forests and to lower inter-tree competition. © Institute of Chartered Foresters, 2015.
