Foothills Pine Project Team

The Foothills Pine Project Team continues the work of the Foothills Growth & Yield Association, which formed in 2000 to co-operatively forecast and monitor managed stand growth and yield in Lodgepole pine.

Its mission comprises three activities: forecasting and monitoring responses to silvicultural treatments, facilitating the scientific development and validation of yield forecasts used by members in managing their tenures; and promoting knowledge, shared responsibility, and cost-effective cooperation

An FGrOW initiative.
As a result of significant in-flights of mountain pine beetles coming from British Columbia in 2006 and 2009, as well as subsequent local production, there are widely distributed pine dominated stands throughout Alberta that have been significantly affected by MPB-caused mortality. Mortality is most prevalent from West-Central Alberta, in the Grande Prairie are and northwest of Manning.
How will a stand respond after MPB infestation, and what can the forestry industry do to help it regenerate?
A long-term collaboration.
How can forest companies best help stands bounce back from a MPB infestation?
