  • Att-Mask R-CNN: an individual tree crown instance segmentation method
           based on fused attention mechanism

      Authors: Wenjing Chen, Zhihao Guan, Demin Gao
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Tree detection and canopy area measurement are important and difficult tasks in forest inventory, which are important for understanding forest stand structure. This study utilized remotely piloted aircraft (RPA) aerial photography technology to collect remote sensing images of forests in Xiong County, China, creating a dataset comprising 1200 images of six tree species. Based on this dataset, the paper proposes an optimized model, Att-Mask R-CNN, for canopy detection and segmentation. Att-Mask R-CNN outperforms the original models (Mask R-CNN and MS R-CNN) by achieving 65.29% mean average precision for detection, 80.44% mean intersection over union for segmentation, and 90.67% overall recognition rate for the six tree species. In addition, a pixel statistics method based on segmentation masks is introduced for estimating the vertical projected area of individual tree crowns, and comparisons between the measured and predicted vertical projected area of the crowns of six tree species (100 trees of each class) show an overall goodness-of-fit R2 of 85% and a relative root-mean-square error rRMSE of 12.81%. By using remote sensing images from RPAs and optimizing existing deep learning models, the detection and segmentation of individual tree canopies can be achieved, resulting in a more accurate understanding of forest structure, which provides scientific support for forest management and resource monitoring.

      Authors: Hanyue Chen, Quang V. Cao, Yihang Jiang, Yuxin Hu, Jianguo Zhang, Xiongqing Zhang
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Growth and yield systems are essential tools for enhancing forest management decision-making. This study systematically evaluated three stand-level models and two data types for predicting stand survival and basal area of Chinese fir (Cunning lanceolate (Lamb.) Hook.) plantations in southern China. The first model links survival and diameter through the self-thinning concept. The second model incorporates stand diameter, the previous year’s diameter, and stand survival, while the third model treats stand survival and diameter as mutually independent functions of only stand age. Model 2 was the best performer for short-term prediction (2–4 years), whereas Model 3 excelled in longer projection periods (6–10 years). Despite the independent predictions of stand survival and diameter in Model 3, it closely tracked observed self-thinning trajectories in long-term predictions. Tree-level model growth derived from Models 2 and 3 performed optimally for short-term and long-term tree-level predictions, respectively. While limited to four experimental sites, this research contributes theoretical groundwork to growth and yield modeling for Chinese fir plantations.

  • Importance of high-resolution spatial data for the detection of winter
           wildlife responses to edges

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Yann Baril-Chauvette, Pauline Suffice, André Desrochers
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Several wildlife species are thought to avoid edges of large habitat gaps, such as clear-cuts, but detailed evidence is rarely available for edges of smaller gaps. We compared the responses of nine wintering mammal species to forest edges in southern Quebec, Canada, using high-resolution spatial data from light detection and ranging (LiDAR) and low-resolution photo-interpretation. We defined edges of open areas as roads, lakes, rivers, or forest open areas. We geolocated mammal snow tracks along systematic transect lines between 2009 and 2018. We compared distances of snow tracks and reference points along transects to the nearest edge with linear models. LiDAR data revealed five species avoiding forest open area edges, whereas no avoidance was shown using photo-interpretation data. Weasels (Mustela sp.) were the only species showing a positive association with forest open area edges using photo-interpreted data. No significant response was detected for river or lake edges. Four species were positively associated with road edges. We conclude that avoidance of small forest open area edges is widespread in our study area, but it can only be detected with high-resolution spatial data. Our results imply that edge effect can operate at a fine scale and using appropriate spatial resolution is crucial to detect such effects.

      Authors: Bastien Vandendaele, Olivier Martin-Ducup, Richard A. Fournier, Gaetan Pelletier
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      This study explores how data from a handheld mobile laser scanning (MLS) system and quantitative structural models (QSM) can be used to estimate tree structural attributes. Four MLS acquisition scenarios were investigated in a 1 ha temperate hardwood stand, including 15 and 35 m parallel lines, nine circular plots, and a 20 m × 20 m grid. Results were compared against terrestrial laser scanning and destructive field measurements. All acquisition scenarios yielded comparable results, except for the 35 m scenario, which showed greater variability. The 20 m × 20 m grid scenario showed the highest accuracy, with an RMSE of 0.41 m (2.07%) for tree height, 3.98 cm (14.93%) for diameter at breast height, 0.21 m³ (19.28%) for merchantable wood volume, and 0.07 m³ (10.11%) for merchantable stem volume.

  • A new approach for spatializing the Canadian National Forest Inventory
           (SCANFI) using Landsat dense time series

      Authors: Luc Guindon, Francis Manka, David L.P. Correia, Philippe Villemaire, Byron Smiley, Pierre Bernier, Sylvie Gauthier, André Beaudoin, Jonathan Boucher, Yan Boulanger
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Accurate and fine-scale forest data are essential to improve natural resource management, particularly in the face of climate change. Here, we present SCANFI, the Spatialized CAnadian National Forest Inventory, which provides coherent, 30 m resolution 2020 wall-to-wall maps of forest attributes (land cover type, canopy height, crown closure, aboveground tree biomass, and main species composition). These maps were developed using the NFI photo-plot dataset, a systematic regular sample grid of photo-interpreted high-resolution imagery covering all of Canada's non-arctic landmass. SCANFI was produced using temporally harmonized summer and winter Landsat spectral imagery along with hundreds of tile-level regional models based on a multiresponse k-nearest neighbours and random forest imputation method. This tile-level approach revealed the importance of radiometric variables in predicting vegetation attributes, namely winter radiometry, as the large-scale climate gradients were controlled at the tile-level. SCANFI was validated with rigorous cross-validation analyses, which revealed robust model performance for structural attributes (biomass R2 = 0.76; crown closure R2 = 0.82; height R2 = 0.78) and tree species cover (e.g., Douglas fir R2 = 0.60). SCANFI attributes were also validated with several independent external products, ranging from ground plot-based tree species cover (e.g., black spruce R2 = 0.53) to satellite LiDAR height data products (e.g., crown closure R2 = 0.71). SCANFI total aboveground biomass trends also followed those published by other studies. The methodology presented herein can be used to map time series of these attributes, identify the original training points used to make any given prediction, as well as map additional variables associated with the NFI photo-plots that are challenging to map using traditional remote sensing approaches.

      Authors: Janne Toivonen, Annika Kangas, Matti Maltamo, Mikko Kukkonen, Petteri Packalen
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      European aspen is a keystone species in boreal forests, which support numerous ecologically important and endangered species. As detection of those species by remote sensing is impossible, we instead investigated the detection of large aspen trees using airborne laser scanning and aerial image data. However, this is a challenge due to their low quantity and scattered occurrence. The performance was assessed with representative and unrepresentative (where aspens were over-represented) samples of the population. First, we detected individual trees and then the random forest (RF) classifier was used to identify large aspens. The RF classification was implemented with and without synthetic minority oversampling technique (SMOTE) to balance the training data due to the rarity of large aspens. At the tree-level, the best F1-score (0.44) was obtained when the unrepresentative plot data were used with SMOTE. However, the F1-score decreased to 0.21 when the representative data were used. The best plot-level (plots with at least one aspen tree) F1-score with the representative plot data was 0.41. We conclude that although data augmentation may improve the result, it is difficult to detect large aspen trees in genuine populations.

  • Are operational plantations meeting expectations' A large-scale assessment
           of realized versus anticipated yield in eastern Canada

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Martin Barrette, Isabelle Auger, Nelson Thiffault, Julie Barrette
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Forest plantations play an increasingly important role in meeting global demand for wood. They usually have higher yield than naturally regenerated forests. Thus, plantations can support economically viable wood production, enable forest conservation elsewere, help mitigate climate change by contributing to carbon sequestration and increase forest resilience and resistance to biotic and abiotic stressors. If yield of plantations is not as high as anticipated, then their use could generate important sustainability issues. There are still major gaps in our understanding of the factors that influence yield, even with respect to black spruce, white spruce, and jack pine, three of the most commonly planted tree species in northeastern North America. Our objective was to evaluate the yield of forest plantations of these species over a 416 000 km2 region that was representative of northeastern North American forests. Contrary to our prediction, realized yield of operational plantations was consistently lower than anticipated. Site index and competition both played a significant role in determining the yield of plantations. In the context of uncertain realized yield of operational plantations, we emphasize the necessity of relying on adaptive management to determine harvest levels that are compatible with sustainable management objectives.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shawn Donovan, David A. MacLean
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      We compared three methods for estimating current-year spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana (Clem.)) defoliation from 2014 to 2021 using a network of 99 permanent sample plots in central Gaspé Peninsula, Québec. Percent current-year defoliation was measured by assessing shoots from mid-crown branches, ocular ratings of all individual trees using binoculars, and provincial government aerial surveys. Ocular survey defoliation differed from branch sample defoliation in 5–6 out of 7 years, consistently underestimating defoliation, across the full range of defoliation severity observed. Nested mixed-effect models for fir–spruce combined, balsam fir, white spruce, and black spruce ocular survey defoliation bias resulted in marginal R2 of 0.40, 0.47, 0.82, and 0.86, respectively. Current defoliation severity and its interaction with previous year defoliation and weather conditions significantly affected ocular survey bias. Correspondence of aerial survey estimates and mean plot defoliation occurred in only 43% of all plot-years and ranged from 14%–58% in individual years. Differences between aerial survey defoliation and plot values mainly resulted from assigning an adjacent class (e.g., light

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      The Amazon biome is influenced by El Niño event, which reduce precipitation and increase temperature. However, little is known about its effects on tree formation dynamics in this region. Here, we evaluated the effects of local (precipitation, temperature, and solar insolation) and large-scale (El Niño) climatic variables on wood traits of Tectona grandis (teak) in the Amazon. Discs were collected from the base of trees aged 12 years and used for anatomical and physical analyses. We evaluated three periods (i.e., pre-El Niño (2012/2013), El Niño (2014/2015), and post-El Niño (2016/2017)). Wood density, vessels, and rays were compared to local and large-scale climatic variables. The extreme drought caused by El Niño event reduced the width and length of teak vessels. Additionally, precipitation during some months of the year increased vessel size and wood density. In some months of the year, ambient temperature reduced vessel width and length. Moreover, the effect of solar insolation depended on soil moisture availability. Thus, our results provided clear evidence of teak acclimatization to El Niño in the Amazon region and should promote further studies on tree responses to climate.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Forest fires and logging drive the structure of boreal forest landscapes. According to recent studies, stand origin is a key driver of the variation in wood properties in black spruce (Picea mariana (Mill.) BSP.), although the underlying mechanisms remain to be elucidated. By comparing post-cut, post-fire and old-growth forests, this study aimed to better distinguish the effects of stand structure from those of the seed or layer origin of the trees on wood properties. We conducted comparative analyses based on ecological characteristics of the sites and static bending tests of small, defect-free wood specimens. Black spruce stands with a regular structure established after logging or fire exhibited higher stiffness at a given cambial age than old-growth forests with irregular structures, as well as lower wood density in the first 40 rings near the pith. However, the bending strength was comparable in all three types of forests studied. Differences in wood stiffness among stand types appeared to be driven more by stand structure than by the seed or layer origin of the stems.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Planted forests are in the utilisation phase in Japan, contributing to the increased use of timber and the realisation of carbon neutrality. We simulated and compared the carbon emission reduction effects of three forest management scenarios, including a no final cutting scenario at two geographical scales, in the context of a privately owned Cryptomeria japonica planted forest in Tsuruoka City, Yamagata Prefecture, Japan. We adopted two substitution approaches: the status quo approach and the dynamic approach in line with Japan’s nationally determined contribution. We used hypothetical stands over three rotation periods of 150 years at the stand level, and a harvest schedule of 120 years at the regional level. The harvesting scenarios based on the status quo substitution approach reduced carbon emissions more than the no final cutting scenario for current wood usage at the study site, although those based on the dynamic substitution approach reduced carbon emissions as much as the no final cutting scenario during the first 30 years. Sustainable timber production from forests may reduce carbon emissions as much as unharvested forests until 2050, indicating that the substitution effects of harvested wood products could have a significant impact on the climate change mitigation effect arising from timber.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      Eucalyptus species are cultivated for various purposes around the world, mainly because they adapt well and grow quickly. These productive matrices of planted forests are common in Brazil, added to which, areas of native vegetation are requirements of environmental legislation. Although eucalyptus plantations are widely distributed in Brazil, little is known about the soil seed bank (SSB) in the eucalyptus productive matrix (EPM). We aim to understand how the EPM made up of eucalyptus plantations and native forest remnants affect the SSB in the Brazilian Pampa. Samples of the SSB of EPM were collected and monitored for 6 months in a shade house. We evaluated seedling emergence, richness, composition, ecological characteristics of the species, diversity, and floristic similarity. We recorded a high rate of seedling emergence, species richness, and different life forms and native species in all EPM treatments; however, the similarity between native remnants and eucalyptus plantations was low. The size and level of conservation of native remnants and the position and management of eucalyptus sites in the EPM influenced the diversity and composition of species. Eucalyptus plantations contain SSBs with potential for natural regeneration when they are in a landscape that maintains conserved native forest remnants. These results expand the knowledge of the SSB in EPM and can support actions in ecological restoration projects.

      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      The Atlantic Forest fragments have suffered from the impacts of climate change, resulting in the increased production of coarse woody debris (CWD), which needs to be evaluated in space and time to generate accurate estimates of carbon accumulation. Thus, the goals of this study were (i) to quantify the CWD volume, necromass, carbon stock, and annual increment of carbon (AIcarb) over a period of 4 years; and (ii) to select the optimal combination of climatic, topographic, edaphic, and intrinsic forest variables to accurately predict AIcarb using machine learning and multivariate analysis. The CWD volume, necromass, and carbon stock increased between 2017 and 2020. The AIcarb was 1.09 MgC ha−1 year−1 (2017–2018), 1.24 MgC ha−1 year−1 (2018–2019), and 2.31 MgC ha−1 year−1 (2019–2020). Statistical analysis indicated that climate variables had greater weight in the CWD carbon increment in the 2018–2019 and 2019–2020 periods, while edaphic, topographical, and intrinsic forest variables were more important for the 2017–2018 period. Our findings showed that the carbon increase in CWD was linked to temporal and spatial variables within forests. These results demonstrate the importance of this parameter in the carbon cycle of forest ecosystems and highlight that there should be greater international research efforts to quantify this carbon pool.

      Mixed plantations are garnering increased attention due to their potential to provide a broader array of benefits compared to monocultures. Although numerous studies have indicated promising complementarity between black spruce (Picea mariana) and tamarack (Larix laricina), few have delved into individual tree growth interactions to thoroughly assess early growth complementarity. We sampled 119 planted black spruce and their immediate environment to quantify and qualify any differences between two conditions in young plantations: mixed tamarack (“mixtures”) and black spruce monocultures (“monocultures”) within young plantations. We investigated the effect of neighbouring under four perspectives: tree competition, microenvironment, foliar nutrients, and soil nutrients. Our results showed increased values for black spruce foliar nitrogen total concentration, soil pH, and canopy closure in mixtures compared to monocultures. Furthermore, black spruce stem volume was increased by 38.1% in mixture compared to monoculture. Black spruce stem volume was negatively affected (86% decrease) by the combined effect of shrubs and non-crop trees under high competition pressure, despite the plantation being mechanically released in 2017. Collectively, our results suggest that black spruce growing in mixtures holds a greater growth potential than black spruce in monocultures.

  • Early treatment effects on plantation growth and biodiversity in mature
           ponderosa pine forest

      Authors: Jianwei Zhang, Kaelyn Finley
      Abstract: Canadian Journal of Forest Research, Ahead of Print.
      We address the concerns that managed forest plantations may cause reductions of diversity of understory vegetation. We performed inventories of two mature ponderosa pine plantations in which multiple treatments were applied during plantation establishment. At stand age 35, we measured tree heights and diameters, understory plant cover and diversity, soil nutrients and chemical properties, and soil microbial biomass and diversity with phospholipid fatty acid. We found a significant, positive effect from both herbicide (H) and fertilizer (F) applications on subsequent overstory tree growth and development (P

      Understanding relationships among warming climate, increased drought severity, and the genetic architecture of hybrid drought resilience is necessary for forest conservation and management. We calculated three drought-related tree-ring-growth indices (dendrophenotypes) using tree-ring data from hybrid Pinus strobiformis–Pinus flexilis study trees at nine sites across Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Texas. Along with hybrid index (percentage of P. strobiformis ancestry inherited by a single tree) and climate variables, we used dendrophenotypes to (Q1) examine relationships among climate and hybrid index, (Q2) examine relationships between dendrophenotypes and hybrid index, and (Q3) conduct a genotype–phenotype analysis. We observed a significant correlation between hybrid index and dendrophenotypes resulting from high-temperature drought in addition to a significant correlation between those dendrophenotypes and our dataset of single-nucleotide polymorphisms. We conclude that P. strobiformis–P. flexilis trees exhibiting higher hybrid indices are more resilient to high-temperature drought events and encourage future research that identifies a genetic linkage between relevant loci and their conferred physiological benefits.
