In the continental interior it occurs from the Okanagan and Kootenay lakes region of British Columbia south to eastern Oregon, central Idaho, and west of the Continental Divide in Montana [71,]. Grand fir is planted for lumber and as an ornamental in Hawaii [ ] and Europe [ ]. In British Columbia, bigleaf maple grows occasionally in even-aged, pure stands, but most commonly in early and intermediate stages of secondary succession mixed with conifers or hardwoods. It is a pioneer species (primary succession) on talus and floodplains, and .   In British Columbia, sheep vegetation management (SVM) is a relatively new technique; thus, limited data are available for examining its benefits on conifer growth. We collected field data from young mixed-conifer plantations of lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) and hybrid spruce (Picea glauca × P. engelmannii) in blocks which had been grazed in and as well as from ungrazed : R.

Yield Implications of Site Preparation Treatments for Lodgepole Pine and White Spruce in Northern British Columbia Francesco Cortini 1, *, Philip G. Comeau 1, Jacob O. Boateng 2 and Lorne Bedford 2. Picea glauca, the white spruce, is a species of spruce native to the northern temperate and boreal forests in North America. Picea glauca was originally native from central Alaska all through the east, across southern/central Canada to the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland. It now has become naturalized southward into the far northern United States border states like Montana, Minnesota Family: Pinaceae. Here’s what Leiberg observed about lodgepole pine fire regimes in the Oregon Cascades in (p. ) The southern and central portions are covered with stands of lodgepole pine, all reforestations after fires and representative of all ages of burns from one hundred fifty years ago [ca. ] up . We evaluated the effects of site preparation treatments on growth of lodgepole pine and white spruce in north-eastern British Columbia, Canada. These treatments can provide yield gains of up to 10 percent for lodgepole pine and white spruce at 60 and 80 years, respectively (estimated using TASS). Stands of these two species are showing a Type 1 by: 8.

Three lodgepole pine and aspen mixedwood sites located in the central interior of British Columbia within the Sub Boreal Spruce (SBS) biogeoclimatic zone were chosen to study the neighbourhood. Lodgepole pine forests in British Columbia (BC) are experiencing the largest mountain pine beetle (MPB) epidemic in recorded history. Now that the peak of the epidemic has passed, information regarding the existing live secondary stand structure (height >4 m but DBH cm) in the MPB-attacked stands are needed to assess Cited by: This study investigated relationships between lodgepole pine {Pinus contorta Dougl. ex Loud.) height growth and ecological site quality. Vegetation, environmental, and stand data, obtained from seventy-two sample plots established in immature stands over wide range of soil moisture and soil nutrient conditions in the montane boreal climate in central British Columbia, were analyzed using the. for establishing lodgepole pine in the sub-boreal spruce zone of interior British Columbia: the Bednesti trial,year results.
