Abstract

Northern white-cedar is a common tree species throughout the Northeast, Lake States and adjacent Canada. It occurs on a wide range of sites and in many forest types, in pure stands and mixtures. Despite its ecological and economic importance, northern white-cedar has historically been one of the least studied commercially valuable tree species in its range. This presentation will review the findings of five years of research by a team of scientists in Quebec and Maine on northern white-cedar ecology and silviculture, including regeneration establishment, early growth, recruitment, quality, volume growth and growth efficiency, site influences, damaging agents, resource sustainability and treatment recommendations.
