Forestry Incentive Program investments made in 1974 were sampled in late 1981 to determine whether treatments made had been successful. Nine percent of acres treated were sampled. The retention rate for treated stands was 96.5%. Of the total treated acres lost, 36% had been replanted or interplanted. Drought, insects, and diseases were the primary causes of loss of treated acres. North. J. Appl. For. 4:133-135, Sept. 1987.
