    Invasive Plant Strategy, Interfor Adams Lake
 
Project lead: Peters, Theresa (FIA Coordinator, Forsite Consultants)
Contributing Authors: Interfor - Adams Lake Lumber Division; Thompson Resource Management Ltd.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
International Forest Products (Intefor), Adams Lake Lumber Division, operates within the Adams Lake watershed. The area of interest (AOI) of this invasive plant survey/ strategy is located within Forest Licence A 18693, which is entirely within the Headwaters and Kamloops Forest Districts. The AOI is also contained wholly within the Thompson-Nicola Regional District (TNRD).
Encroachment by invasive plant species is beginning to impact the Adams Lake area. Valuable wildlife habitat and soil productivity could be lost to invasive (ie: non-native) plant species.
This project will help to identify the extent of the problem with the identified AOI and make recommendations for management or control strategies. This information will assist Interfor in addressing the objectives related to control of noxious weeds/ invasive plants that are outlined in the Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) and within the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified program.

The natural resources that are found within the Interfor, Adams Lake Lumber Division AOI and on adjacent private properties include:
-Agricultiral and fiber production;
-Fish and wildlife habitat;
-Camping and recreation sites;
-A helahty diversity of fauna and flora;
-Watersheds and lakes; and,
-Areas of high aesthetic values.

These natural resources may also be impacted by the encroachment of invasive plants
