Forest Management at Base Valcartier - 2020-2021

In accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the Department of National Defence (DND) and Canadian Forest Service (CFS), CFS will carry out forest management work on behalf of DND on the Ranges and Training Areas of the 2nd Canadian Division Support Base Valcartier. This work is an integral part of the Valcartier Base Forest Management Plan. From December 2020 until the end of March 2021, selection cutting, irregular shelterwood cutting (ISC) and cutting with protection of regeneration and soils (CPRS) will be carried out. To access the sites to be developed in the above-mentioned sectors, existing forest roads will be redeveloped and new sections will be built. In the summer of 2021, reforestation, plantation clearing, pre-commercial thinning and vegetation control are also planned.

The forest management work will comply with the Règlement sur l'aménagement durable du territoire forestier (RADF) in force since April 2018 in Quebec.
