Description:
This report summarizes the third measurement of an ingress trial installed in 2005 by Weyerhaeuser Company in south central British Columbia. The trial was installed to monitor change in the stand density and species composition of natural regeneration (ingress) of trees occurring on three sites after salvaging timber burned in the wildfires of summer 2003. Each site was sampled with six randomly located clusters of sixteen 1 x 1 m sample plots. Ingress was measured after two, four, and six growing seasons following harvest (after the 2005, 2007, and 2009 growing seasons).
