Abstract

Forest managment in British Columbia requires that all resource calues are considered along with a variety of apporpriate management practices. For the past 100 years, partial-cutting parctices were the method of choice when harvesting in Interior Douglas-fir (IDF) zone ecosystems. ALong wiht a highly effective fire suppression program and minimal stand tending, these practices have created new and distinct stand structures. These range form low-density stands of uniform height to variable-density, multi-layered satnds with patchy distributions of tree clumps and canopy gaps.
