Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative
FIA Project 2531006

    Permanent access assessment for the Morice timber supply area interim report [2006/07 Project Description Only]
Project lead: Tweedsmuir Forest Ltd.
Imprint: Prince George, BC : Timberline Natural Resource Group., 2007
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), Timber Supply Areas (B.C.)
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program - Innovative
The roads, trails, and landings activity was initiated by the Morice and Lakes IFPA to quantify the magnitude of permanent roads, trails, and landings within the Morice Timber Supply Area (TSA) Timber Harvesting Landbase (THLB), identify their location, assess site productivity and rehabilitation potential and classify these structures based on their operational use. A GIS classified roads, trails, and landings coverage was created that identifies trail and landing classes. Fifteen map sheets within the Morice TSA were randomly selected in order to ensure non-biased, representative results, related to forest development activities. Within this sample population, a total of 900 random roads, trails, and landings samples were designed to assess roads, trails, and landings area and productivity. Field data collection activities were initiated in 2006 resulting in approximately 60% (500) field samples being completed. The remaining field samples are scheduled for completion in the spring/summer of 2007. Field data was key punched into a roads, trails and landings database for future analysis. Analysis activities are planned for summer 2007 subsequent to the completion of field sampling. As a complete data set is currently not available there are no specific results to report relating to the field data collected to date. A full analysis with results will be documented in the final project report.
