This treatment, part of our forest renewal program, will temporarily control herbaceous, shrub and deciduous competition, to improve the growth and survival of tree seedlings and saplings.

Application of herbicides is scheduled to begin on or around August 15, 2023, pending approval from Alberta Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Economic Development. The planned completion date for the program is September 15, 2023.
