Stand Modelling Research
On-going scientific research enables the continuous improvement of growth and yield models and tools, which further enables the continuous improvement of sustainable forest management practices.
Growth and yield research and modelling have been long-term government responsibilities since the early 1900s when forestry was British Columbia's main economic driver.
See below for examples of ongoing areas of research.
- B.C. Interior Stand Growth Response to Fertilization
- Simulating the Impact of Western Gall Rust on Lodgepole Pine Yields
- Shifting the focus from volume yield toward financial return and harvest timing (PDF)
- The interaction between competition in interior Douglas-fir plantations and Armillaria root disease in B.C.
