The Boreal Research Institute is instrumental in providing novel, scientifically proven, and cost-effective reclamation methods, products, and education for industry in four key research programs:
- Forest Reclamation – we innovate boreal reforestation methods for industry to improve reclamation success while reducing management risks and costs.
- Peatland Restoration – we advance technologies in peatland reclamation and management to reduce the ecological footprint on boreal peatlands.
- Plant & Seed Technologies – we facilitate the collection, treatment, and delivery of native boreal shrub, forb and graminoid species for reclamation in north-western Alberta.
- Research Extension & Education – we promote the timely publication of relevant applied research to enable industry to meet ecological reclamation and reforestation standards on forest and peatland sites throughout Alberta.
