Garry Oak and Arbutus

Dry Broadleaf Forest [Red-Listed]

Among the three Garry oak associations classified by the province, this one often occurs along the edges and ridges of oak stands along the transition to Douglas-fir forest. Excellent examples are found on Salt Spring at all the places where contiguous woodlands of Garry oak occur.
