The Stand Management Cooperative (SMC) is a multi-agency growth and yield cooperative established in 1985. The main objective is to provide a continuing source of consistently high quality data on the effects of stand management practices on stand growth and yield, tree growth and yield, wood quality and product recovery through the design, establishment and maintenance of a regional program of integrated research on various aspects of intensive stand management. The SMC currently measures and maintains 92 active research installations, of which Research Branch is responsible for 22 located in BC. The data for these installations and all other SMC installations contribute to the Provincial Growth and Yield Program (GYP) that provides data, models, and information needed for essential tasks such as inventory projection, planning silvicultural treatments, calculating stumpage revenues and determining allowable annual cuts.
