Establishing and Maintaining Hybrid Poplar Plantations


Establishing and Maintaining Hybrid Poplar Plantations

Planting fast-growing hybrid poplar for future firewood, pulpwood or saw logs may be of interest to landowners interested in converting agricultural land into permanent tree cover.
Ken Fosty was directly involved in coordinating and implementing a massive tree planting program that saw 1,000 acres of hybrid poplar plantations planted on private land across Manitoba.
This pictorial audio-visual presentation shows all aspects of hybrid poplar planting including seedling selection, site selection and preparation, planting and weed control.
Proper planning and scheduling of maintenance intervals are discussed. What works and what doesn’t.
Timing: Year Round
Duration: 1.5 hours
Seminars are all-inclusive. All of the materials, props, equipment and handout material are supplied.
