Roberts Creek Study Forest

The Roberts Creek Study Forest, was established on the Sunshine Coast to demonstrate, describe and compare a wide range of approaches for harvesting and managing lower elevation Douglas-fir dominated ecosystems in the CWHdm biogeoclimatic zones. The Study Forest is currently made up of a demonstration block, the Phase 1 blocks established in 1996/97 and Phase 2 blocks established primarily for hydrology research.

The concept of dispersed retention harvesting was introduced to the Roberts Creek Study Forest in 1994. As part of a collaborative project, the Coast Region Research Section and the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) produced a video to demonstrate some of the issues involved in planning and implementing a shelterwood harvesting prescription.
