FORESTS

Only about 20 percent of the dry forests of the Okanagan and Similkameen remain as intact habitat.  Remaining forests have often been lost or degraded due to urban development and agricultural conversion.  Fire suppression efforts often result in dense, unhealthy forests as well, so while it is important to conserve forest areas, preservation without regular fires or other thinning techniques does not always result in healthy forests.
