Careful harvesting to preserve advance growth is an attractive regeneration option for many peatland black spruce stands. Success of this option depends on enough well-distributed trees surviving harvesting. This study examines the fate of black spruce advance growth following overstory harvesting by three methods. About 80% of the original advance growth stocking remained after winter harvesting, 70% after summer harvesting using wide-tired skidders, and 60% after summer harvesting using narrow-tired skidders. Mortality of advance growth occurred mainly during harvesting and in the first growing season after harvesting. North. J. Appl. For. 12(1):8-11.
