Project lead: Peters, Theresa (Forsite Consultants Ltd.)
Contributing Authors: Timberline Forest Inventory Consultants Ltd.; M.J. Milne and Associates Ltd.
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
The Birk project area is a plateau containing portions of four watersheds, two basins tributary to the Barriere River, and one residual between the Birk and Sprague Creek basins. The area was identified as a priority by Tolko Industries Ltd. staff based on past watershed assessment and restoration related reports, and operational experience. An extensive non-status road network is present on the plateau and on steeper slopes surrounding the plateau. There have been landslides into streams that drain the plateau, some likely related to water management and stability on non-status roads.
