Visually Effective Green-up (VEG)

Defined by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, VEG is of the stage at which regeneration is seen by the public as newly established forest. When VEG is achieved the forest cover generally blocks views of tree stumps, logging debris and bare ground. Distinctions in height, colour, and texture may remain between a cutblock and adjacent forest but the cutblock will no longer be seen as recently cut-over.
