Following the development of a forest management plan for your woodlot, we can do most of the work for you.

Land Preparation

Land Preparation consists of making the land accessible for planting, growth, and plantation maintenance. This activity is carried out when natural regeneration is insufficient to allow a future forest stand of quality to establish.

There are several types of Land Preparation used by Aménagement Forestier et Agricole des Sommets Inc.: brushsawing and windrowing, chipping and harrowing (most recommended).

This treatment of forest harrowing eliminates more effectively undesirable undergrowth by destroying their root system, thus slowing the regrowth of competitive brush and consequently promoting better growth of the seedlings the first years. Moreover, less competitive undergrowth will allow for fewer maintenance treatments.
