Description:
The broad objective of the Sicamous Creek project is to provide the forestry community with information on the sustainable management of wet, cold, high-elevation Engelmann Spruce-Subalpine Fir (ESSF) forests in the Southern Interior. The specific objectives of the soil ecology component of the Sicamous Creek project are to gain an understanding of the properties and processes affecting soil productivity and the effects of harvesting and site preparation disturbance on those processes. The current proposal involves repeat sampling of soil chemical and nutrient properties 10 years after harvesting and site preparation at the Sicamous creek silvicultural systems site.
