The Sicamous Creek Silvicultural Systems project examines clearcutting and silvicultural alternatives to clearcutting in high elevation Engelmann spruce - subalpine fir (ESSF) forests, motivated by concerns about the effects of forestry practices on regeneration, hydrology, and biological diversity. This note summarizes the results of studies that have looked at harvest treatment effects and the effects of different opening sizes on 50 different resource values and ecosystem components.
