Douglas-fir, Lodgepole Pine and Grey Rock-moss

Dry Coniferous Forest [Red-Listed]

Like the arbutus and manzanita association with which it occurs, this community also favours ridge-crests and hilltops where there are expansive views. It’s rare on Salt Spring Island occurring mostly at the summits of Mt. Erskine, Mt. Bruce and Mt. Maxwell.
