Forest Disturbances as a Guide for Woodland Restoration
with Everett Peterson

In ten years of woodland restoration in the urban forest surrounding Goward House (on Arbutus Road in Victoria), Everett Peterson has learned valuable guidelines for success from the forest itself. Variables such as life expectancy of existing tree species, gaps in the forest canopy, topographic location, shade conditions and soil moisture features affect responses to removal of non-native invasive species and re-establishment of native tree and understory species. These variables will be highlighted with slides from the six-acre woodland.
