Predicting site index of Lodgepole pine and interior spruce in the sub-boreal spruce zone Klinka, Karel; Wang, Qingli; Wang, G. G.; Coates, K. Dave; Chourmouzis, Christine


Knowledge of ecological site characteristics and tree growth on different sites is fundamental for silvicultural decisionmaking and planning. With biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification in place in British Columbia, silvicultural management has been given an ecological foundation; however, relationships between growth and site quality have not yet been fully investigated. The purpose of this study was to determine how site conditions within the SBS zone affect the height growth of lodgepole pine (Pl) and interior spruce (Sx).
