Reforestation

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.
