As part of Canfor’s Whitecourt and Fox Creek 2023 Vegetation Management Program, we are proposing to apply glyphosate on cutblocks located within our Forest Management Area and timber licenses in the Whitecourt, Fox Creek, Swan Hills, Fort Assiniboine, and Edson areas. A maximum of 4500 hectares are proposed for treatment throughout the following locations:
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.
