Silviculture

Conifex is committed to prompt reforestation of all harvested lands with ecologically suitable stock. We plant a mixture of spruce, pine, and Douglas fir to ensure future crops are biologically diverse and that forested areas remain resistant to harmful pests and disease.

Conifex plants approximately three trees for each one harvested.

We employ modern and environmentally sound techniques for site preparation and, wherever possible, genetically superior seed is used to sow new seedlings for planting. Our silviculture tracking system enables us to accurately forecast if/when a site will need treatment, what kind of treatment will be required and when to schedule our monitoring and assessments. This way we are able to ensure logged areas are quickly reforested and brought to a free growing* state, ensuring the sustainability of the forest for future generations.

*Free growing describes the state at which a plantation grows unimpeded by disease, brush or other competition. This is achieved through a variety of silviculture treatments and monitoring conducted over a span of up to 20 years.
