The objectives of this report are to describe the physical principles governing the causes and occurence of frost and the effects of frost on conifer seedlings; to identify frost-prone sites; and to present techniques for avoiding or preventing frost problems in young plantations. An understanding of the physical principles should help foresters to identify high risk summer frost sites and to prescribe appropriate harvesting methods, vegetation management treatments, site preparation treatments, and species for these sites.
