Features and Sites
The following section summarizes the best management practices
for reforestation on karst terrain. Be sure to check out more
detailed information in the Karst
Management Handbook for British Columbia.
Best Management Practices for All Vulnerability Categories
The following best management practices are recommended:
- Ensure prompt reforestation after harvesting to help minimize
brush problems and reduce the need for vegetation management.
- Avoid major changes in tree species to maintain
consistency in the forest type and litter biota, which can
influence surface and subsurface karst processes.
- Where required, use alternative stocking standards (e.g.,
cluster planting) on areas with limited growing potential, such
as exposed bedrock and outcrops.
