Stand Tending

The following section summarizes the recommended best management practices for stand tending 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:

  • Advise stand tending crews of karst field assessment results, and give directions for carrying out stand tending operations.
  • If a karst field assessment has not been done, one should be completed to provide appropriate stand tending guidance.
  • Keep spacing and pruning debris clear of surface karst features, cave entrances, watercourses and established trails leading to surface karst features or caves.
