Forest Stewardship Plans                             Top

A Forest Stewardship Plan shows areas on a map where a forest licensee may carry out forest development activities over a period of up to five years.  The areas included in the FSP are called Forest Development Units.  The plan also states the results, strategies or measures that the forest licensee will achieve in order to be consistent with government objectives for forest values.  There are 11 forest values identified by government:  soil, timber, wildlife, fish, water, biodiversity, cultural heritage resources, resource features, recreation resources, visual quality, forage and associated plant communities.  Once the FSP is approved, the government then may issue a cutting permit or a road permit to the forest licensee giving them authority to harvest timber or build roads.

Woodlot Licence Plans                                   Top

 A Woodlot Licence Plan (WLP) takes a slightly different approach to presenting information in relation to objectives set by government or found in legislation.  The plan for woodlots, which are a fixed area tenure, mainly use a default format when addressing results and strategies.  Furthermore, mapping requirements direct the licensees to show the boundaries of areas for which the identified default results or strategies apply.  In general terms the end result is a map that identifies the areas on the woodlot where clearcut harvesting will take place, where partial harvesting will take place and where no harvesting will occur.  The term of a WLP is 10 years.  Following the approval of the WLP, cutting permit and road permit applications will identify individual cutblocks to be harvested and roads to be constructed.

FRPA Government Objectives                   Top

The FRPA planning framework requires that forest tenure holders must submit various operational plans to government for approval prior to carrying out forestry activities.  Operational plans include Forest Stewardship Plans, Woodlot Licence Plans, Range Use Plans or Range Stewardship Plan.  The content of these operational plans are guided by government established objectives.  Government agencies with authority to establish these objectives include the Ministry or Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, the Ministry of Environment, the Ministry Tourism, Culture and the Arts and the Integrated Land Management Bureau. 

While the establishment, filing and maintenance of government objectives remains the responsibility of the individual authorized agency(s), the Chilliwack Natural Resource District office has information available to assist forest and range tenure holders with identifying government objectives applicable to their specific tenured area.  For assistance contact Lucy Stad, Stewardship Forester at 604-702-5763 or Lucy.Stad@gov.bc.ca.
