Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
FIA Project 6764001

    Economic Operability Analysis Tree Farm Licence 57
Project lead: Miehm, Jerry (Timberline)
Author: Timberline Forest Inventory Consultants Ltd.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
The objective of this project is to determine which stands within TFL 57 are currently economically operable or are likely to become economically operable over the next 250 years - consistent with the planning horizon of the upcoming timber supply review (TSR). Economic operability is determined by calculating the expected profit at the time of harvest for each stand. The Appraisal Manual refers to this as value index. It is calculated as the difference between stand selling price and operating cost. The project will deliver an economic operability database, a base case operability map, and a series of supporting maps showing operating cost and stand selling price.
