This report summarizes a part of an overall study funded by the Forest Science Program and corporate partners. The report encompasses the Tolko Industries Ltd. and Gorman Bros. Lumber Ltd. FIA contributions via the Okanagan Innovative Forest Practices Association. This particular project is designed to investigate relative habitat use by mammalian herbivores, specifically mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), moose (Alces alces), and snowshoe hares (Lepus americanus), in 30-year-old stands of lodgepole pine, with a range of green-tree retention (dispersed and aggregated Douglas-fir), and uncut mature/old-growth stands. This year is the first of a 3-year study.
