Grazing of Forest Lands in Interior British Columbia
Abstract:Grazing by livestock is an important use of certain forest types in interior British Columbia. These lands produce palatable and nutritious forage for summer grazing, supplementing the limited amount of spring-fall grassland range. These forests are adapted for multiple use, with grazing fitting well into a pattern which includes watershed maintenance, logging, wildlife, and recreation. The future of forest grazing in the region is complicated by fire protection policies since the best ranges are under sub-climax forest stands which owe their presence to fires.
