COSIA takes reforestation to an all new level

June 9, 2013

COSIA companies conducted a reforestation pilot project in northern Alberta using fallen woody debris such as spruce trees loaded with seed cones and a forestry technique known as mounding to create the hummock and hollow landscape typical of the natural boreal forest on previously flat linear disturbances. The project was also a test for winter tree planting in areas that are inaccessible in the summer due to wet conditions. Native berries and wildflowers show that the sites are gradually returning to their natural state.
