A-18.1, r. 0.01 - Regulation respecting the sustainable development of forests in the domain of the State

Full text
9. A partial harvest not exceeding 40% of the merchantable stems, in the case of stands of species referred to in Part A of Schedule 2, or 40% of the basal area in the case of stands of species referred to in Part B of that Schedule, is however allowed in the strip of woodland when forest operations are carried out on the adjacent land.
However, the density of the stand may never be reduced to less than 700 merchantable stems/ha, in the case of stands of species referred to in Part A of Schedule 2, or the basal area may not be reduced to less than 16 m2/ha, in the case of stand of species referred to in Part B of that Schedule.
Despite the first and second paragraphs, where the sylvicultural prescription provides for partial cutting in the stand adjacent to the strip of woodland referred to in sections 7 and 8, the harvest level indicated in the sylvicultural prescription of the adjacent stand then applies to that strip of woodland.
Residual trees in the strip of woodland must be spread uniformly so as to constitute a visual screen and contribute to maintain the forest ambiance and the function of the place or territory concerned.
Total cutting is prohibited in the strip of woodland.
