Dead Tree Web Site
An Information Source for Wildlife Trees, Snags, and Coarse Woody Debris
Dead trees are an important ecological component of forests. This web site can assist
you in your search for information about dead trees whether you are looking for
introductory information on the role of dead trees or specific information on available
research data. While the site is directed to dead trees (standing and down) and their
management in British Columbia, we wish to provide general information or access to
information about dead trees and their roles to a wider international audience.
