CNVC00010 occurs on mesic, nutrient-medium sites within the Georgia Depression of British Columbia at elevations up to approximately 200 mASL. The vegetation is characterized by a closed canopy of mixed conifers, including western red cedar (Thuja plicata), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and grand fir (Abies grandis), a moderate shrub layer dominated by dull Oregon-grape (Mahonia nervosa) and/or salal (Gaultheria shallon), a herb layer dominated by western sword fern (Polystichum munitum) and vanilla-leaf (Achlys triphylla), and a moss layer dominated by Oregon beaked moss (Eurhynchium oreganum).
