Forest Management Practices in the Context of Climate Uncertainty: Using Silvicultural Tools to Address Droughts and Wildfire Rehabilitation
In BC’s Southern Interior, the summer of 2017 was marked by historic losses to wildfire and widespread drought, clearly showing yet again that in spite of the best made plans …“nature rules”.
Our 2018 Winter Workshop agenda explores some of the background and issues brought up by the 2017 season, and the likely future conditions forest and range managers will need to address. The wildfires and drought affected many economic, ecological and social values, clearly illustrating how closely intertwined Southern Interior communities are with their surrounding environment. SISCO speakers will present their views and engage with the audience in a dialogue on stand and landscape management practices important to a number of challenges including regenerating drought-prone sites, addressing the salvage and rehabilitation of wildfire areas and best management practices to anticipate and prepare for future droughty seasons.
Come join us in discussing and contributing to the next steps in the never-ending journey of improving forest and range management practices.
