The purpose of this document is to outline a survey and compilation procedure for the assessment of post-harvest spruce-aspen mixedwood stands where the spruce component consists primarily of planted trees. The procedure is based on extensive modeling of mixedwood stand development, and uses survey outcomes to predict future yields and the partitioning of that yield into conifer and broadleaved components. The procedure is initially targeted at satisfying the management criteria for intimate mixtures of spruce and aspen as identified in the Sustainable Forest Management Plan for the Fort St. John Pilot Project. However, it should be generally applicable to any postharvest juvenile, even-aged mixtures of white spruce and trembling aspen across the boreal forest of BC and nearby regions of other jurisdictions.
