The Timber Tenure system is the collection of legislation, regulations, contractual
agreements, permits and government policies that define and constrain the right to harvest
the province’s timber. The term "timber tenure" is commonly used to describe the contract
between a company or individual and the government which grants the right to harvest a specified
volume of timber.
In the Fort Nelson Forest District a wide variety of timber tenures are in place, reflecting the
diverse objectives for forest use.
