Forest and range stewardship is the managed use and conservation of resources in a way that takes full and balanced account
of the interests of society. The practice of stewardship involves setting goals and making decisions that lead to actions
affecting the land base. Such decisions address land use, tenure allocation, forest and range practices, conservation of
resource values, revenue, and marketing.
The functions in this core business area are fundamental to ensuring sound environmental stewardship of forest resources
to ensure that they are used in a sustainable way. This in turn supports global recognition of environmental stewardship for
the Province and British Columbia companies by ensuring that an appropriate regulatory framework is in place.
Stewardship topics include inventory, resource management, seed and seedling, growth and yield, timber supply,
silviculture, monitoring, and evaluation.
Examples of training in this area include:
- Forest and Range Practices Act Training
- Seed Planning and Registry System (SPAR)
- Reporting Silviculture Updates and Landstatus Tracking System (RESULTS)
- Forest Stand Management Training
