Silviculture Treatments for Ecosystem Management in the Sayward

Author(s): de Montigny, Louise (BC Ministry of Forests)
Subject: Forestry, Silviculture/Forest Management Systems, Socio-economics
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Forest Science Program


STEMS is a large-scale, multi-resource silvicultural experiment that quantitatively compares the biology, economics and public acceptance of seven silvicultural systems with different management strategies. The objective of the study is to use the concepts of ecosystem management to create diverse, multiple values within the project area by fostering a balanced distribution in time and space of many stand conditions and stages of development that will enhance wildlife habitat and biodiversity. The information will be used as a basis for science-based sustainable forest management and for the development of policy, regulation and guidelines across the province in areas where forests are under harvesting constraints.
