Tree planting

  • 80-90% of harvested area in the Mazinaw-Lanark Forest regenerates naturally from seed and root sprouting, while 10-20% is regenerated through tree planting.
  • Every year approximately 140,000 – 200,000 trees are planted on a variety of sites, usually including underplanting on shelterwood sites and part of clearcut area.
  • Typically 75-90% of planted trees are white pine, about 5-10% is red pine and the balance is split between red oak, white spruce and red spruce.
  • Seedlings are grown from seed at the Ferguson Forest Centre in Kemptville, Ontario in the form known as Jiffy container system and stored in the frozen condition for shipping in the spring.
  • Tree planting is conducted by contractors who have their own hiring process. Mazinaw-Lanark Forest Inc. does not hire tree planters but may provide contact information for the contractors involved in our program.
  • Large majority of our tree planting takes place in early spring (usually between April 20 and May 15). Occasionally late summer planting from late August or mid-September is applied on sites that are difficult to access in spring or present other limitations.
  • Most or tree planting sites are site prepared mechanically in the preceding season. Trees are usually planted at a spacing ranging from 1.8 m to 2.5 m.
