This report describes trends in conifer and vegetation responses to grazing of the Subalpine Herb complex, a common vegetation community on higher elevation logged sites in the southern interior of B.C. Click here for a description of the Subalpine Herb complex. The results presented here are for two sites. The treatment was not adequately replicated to allow analysis of variance to be completed (a minimum of three replicate sites is required). Instead, trends in treatment responses were described for the brushed and untreated areas. The reader is cautioned that these results cannot be directly extrapolated to other sites because of the inadequate replication. Nevertheless, the trends in conifer and vegetation responses to grazing presented here can provide general information about the effectiveness of this treatment. It is important to understand that brushing outcomes on individual sites may differ from the results presented here.
