Abstract

Approximately 40 percent of the forest tenures in the Dawson Creek and Fort St. John Timber Supply Areas (TSA's) contain overlapping range agreements for grazing of Crown range. With the recent increase in deciduous utilization in these TSAs, the potential for resource conflict will increase. The research will examine interactions between range and forest tenure holders and provide a basis for economic assessment of selected management inputs. The proposed research will be instrumental in reducing the uncertainty in resource management decisions. The approach proposed will significantly increase the credibility of management decisions and policy recommendations for both industries.
