COMPARATIVE SNOW DEPTHS IN 40-YEAR-OLD, VARIABLE-SPACED CONIFER PLANTATIONS NEAR THUNDER BAY ONTARIO
January snow depths were measured in randomized, 40 yr old, red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait), white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss.) and black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) B.S.P.) plantations at 1.8, 2.7 and 3.6 m spacing. Relative availability of the tree species to intercept snow, varied with spacing. Attributes of managed conifer stands may influence value as winter habitat for moose (Alces alces).
