This project was established to determine the effects of cattle grazing on regenerating lodgepole pine. A second objective was to examine how the seeding of domestic forage species would influence tree growth and interact with the effects of grazing. The study was repeated on three sites so that results could be applied over a wide area. Two sites are located on the Guichon Creek Road above Tunkwa Lake in the Kamloops Forest District. The third site is near Helmer Lake off the Coquihalla Highway in the Merritt Forest District.
