Drybelt Douglas-fir is a moderately shade-tolerant species that grows in multi-aged stands on dry sites in the southern Interior of British Columbia. These stands may include aspen and scattered or patchy lodgepole pine as well as the Douglas-fir in distinct or mixed layers. Stand structure between and within stands often varies greatly. These drybelt stands have high timber values and, if well managed, can provide opportunities for regular February 1999.
