Thousands of hectares of fire-originated older height repressed pine exist in the Cariboo-Chilcotin area of the Southern Interior Forest Region. Two installations have been established to test the ability of older height repressed pine to respond to stand tending treatments, thinning and fertilization. The first installation was established in a 35 year old stand in the SBPSdc. The positive growth response resulted in this trial (EP1221). The same treatments were tested on a drier subzone (SBPSxc) and on an older stand (~70yrs) where repressed pine commonly occurs. In addition, the trial is in woodland caribou habitat as are many of these repressed pine stands. Therefore the effects of the treatments on terrestrial lichen, a major food source of woodland caribou, are also being followed. [Teresa Newsome].
