The Forests for Tomorrow Program was established by the B.C. Provincial Government
in 2005 to respond to the catastrophic wildfires that occurred in the southern
and central interior, and to the mountain pine beetle epidemic.
reforestation investment is aimed at improving the future timber supply and
addressing risks to other forest values through the re-establishment of young
forests on land that would otherwise remain under-productive. The program
focuses on land that is primarily within the timber harvesting land base yet
outside of forest industry obligations. Program emphasis is on surveying, site
preparation and tree planting with these treatments being guided by strategic
level program planning, seed supply planning, silviculture strategies and timber
supply analyses. The up-front overview surveys and program planning will
formulate a clear and full picture of a cost-effective program and budget
