Project lead: Pope & Talbot Ltd.
Author: EDI Environmental Dynamics Inc.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
The objectives of this project are to develop a spatial risk assessment tool, locally effective management strategies, and draft Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) indicators for invasive plants in the Prince George Timber Supply Area (PGTSA). The project comprises five phases. A final report on Phase I, “Spatial Risk Assessment, Local Management Strategies and SFM Indicators for Invasive Plants in the Prince George Timber Supply Area: Phase I”, was submitted in March 2007.
Phase I. Investigate invasive plant spatial risk assessment, management, indicators, and strategies developed in other areas and provide an approach for the PGTSA (complete).
Phase II. Develop a preliminary spatial risk model (2007-2008).
Phase III. Test the model with field sampling (2007-2008).
Phase IV. Incorporate field verification, operationally test, and finalize model (2007-2008).
Phase V. Provide local management strategies and draft SFM indicators for the PGTSA. (2007-2008).
