Torrent Silviculture works closely with licensees for contracts in the BC interior and Cariboo-Chilcotin areas. Spacing and brushing runs from early summer, when the vegetation is at peak growth, to late fall until the snow falls.
What is Spacing and Brushing?
Spacing is the cutting of undesirable trees, herbaceous and shrubaceous plants within a young stand to reduce competition among the residual trees for water, nutrients, and sunlight. Spacing and brushing are done to control density to meet tree growth objectives, meet biodiversity and wildlife habitat resource objectives, maintain or enhance forest health, manage species composition and stand structure, and increase stand value. Typically, the effects of reducing stand density are, an increase in growth of trees, an increase in juvenile wood production, and a reduction in the length of financial and technical rotations.
