  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • The results of preliminary experiments on pre-germination treatment methods for nine selected native woody plant species are presented. The species investigated include Amelanchier alnifolia (saskatoon), Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (bearberry), Elaeagnus commutata (silverberry), Juniperus communis (common juniper), Rosa acicular is (prickly rose), Rosa woodsii (Fendler woods rose), Rubus parviflorus (thimbleberry), Rubus strigosus (wild red raspberry) and Shepherdia canadensis (russet buffalo berry). These studies represent a portion of a program to evaluate, select and test native trees and shrubs for disturbed land reclamation in the Rocky Mountain Eastern Slopes of Alberta.
