The Northern Wetbelt Silvicultural Systems Project is an established, long-term study designed to investigate the ecological and silvicultural outcomes of different silvicultural systems (including clearcut and partial cut harvest methods and uncut controls) in wet Interior cedar-hemlock and subalpine spruce-fir forests. Seven silvicultural systems study areas have been established in the mountains of east-central British Columbia, specifically in Wet and Very Wet ICH and ESSF subzones. The project includes older installations (Lucille, Fleet) and a recently-established set of replicated ICH and ESSF trials (East Twin, Minnow, Lunate, Pinkerton, Bearpaw).
