To assess ecosystem response to variable retention harvesting practices. LLEMS, a spatially explicit model, is being developed in partnership with industry, academia and resource management agencies, to give forest managers a tool to assess the long term ecological impacts of VRM in cutblocks ranging in size from 10-1000 ha. It is critical that as a decision support tool, LLEMS meets Interfor’s operational and strategic planning objectives for tenures located throughout coastal B.C. This project is planned to meet these objectives.
