Author: Horel, Glynnis
Subject: Forest Investment Account (FIA), British Columbia
Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program
Description:
This project was initiated by BC Timber Sales to provide the basis for physical watershed assessment and to develop indicators for watersheds in the Burman-Jacklah area, formerly part of Tree Farm License 19. The project area, located on the west side of Vancouver Island, is 16,452 ha. It includes the portion of the Burman watershed that is outside of Strathcona Park. Assessing the watershed within the park was not within the scope of the project.
The objectives are:
-To propose indicators for tracking the effectiveness of forest management strategies, and indicators for Sustainable Forest management of watersheds;
-To identify candidate sites for possible riparian, in-stream restoration and road deactivation projects; and
-To characterize physical watershed conditions as the basis for developing forest management strategies.
