Ecosystem Restoration Program

The Community Ecosystem Restoration Program primarily targeted the reestablishment of native conifer and hardwood trees in pockets of degraded forest land within protected riparian zones and other types of parkland. It consisted of selectively removing small pockets of existing shrub vegetation (mainly the invasive Himalayan blackberry) and then planting long-lived, ecologically suitable native tree species, singly or in clusters of various shapes, and then enhancing the growth and survival of these trees using silvicultural best practices through to a free growing state. Planting projects were completing in Maple Ridge, Mission, City and Township of Langley, and a few Metro Vancouver Parks.
