Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA)
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
In 2005 the Morice-Lakes IFPA members (led by CanFor) proposed developing a multi-block survey system and landscape level stocking standards to measure reforestation performance within the IFPA. The essence of the system is assessing regeneration performance 10 to 15 years after harvest to determine if, across a series of cutblocks, the predicted future volume from these stands exceeds a target future volume possible with an aggressive silviculture regime. Regeneration would be considered successful if, for the entire population of blocks, predicted future volume exceeded target future volume, regardless of whether there were some sections with low or no stocking within the population. Perceived benefits included: Flexibility to invest first in those treatments/sites which yield greatest gains at least cost. Opportunity to better allocate area or emphasis to biodiversity objectives. A better link between reforestation effort and timber supply analysis. A potential opportunity to link AAC allocations to regeneration performance. Government review and tracking at the multi-block level. Reduced survey costs.
