Le faciès clairsemé du peuplement d'épinette dans la lichénaie, malgré une production suffisante de graines viables, serait le résultat de l'inhibition de la régénération par la mortalité des semis, là où la neige soufflée par le vent ne s'accumule pas suffisamment pour les isoler des stress thermiques.
