This report documents initial findings on the response of vegetation to different intensities of slashburning on fire-sensitive sites. The study sites were 3-year-old clearcuts at mid-elevation on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Two fire intensities plus an unburned comparison were replicated in a balanced, incomplete block design. Ocular estimates of percent cover of all ground forage were conducted prior to treatment and 1 and 2 years after burning.
