Since 1918, forest researchers have used the Petawawa Research Forest to establish long term experiments and have collected data using varied and innovative techniques to learn how trees grow within Canada’s Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Forest Region. This knowledge is used to inform forest practices as well as to help predict and prepare for wildfires, climate change and other forest management challenges.
