The Landscape Unit Planning Guide (1999) (LUGP) provides a framework for landscape unit planning on the crown lands of British Columbia. Initial phases of landscape planning such as; designating areas as Resource Management Areas (RMA), defining landscape unit (LU) boundaries and designating biodiversity emphasis (BEOs) for each landscape unit have been enshrined in law for the entire Kootenay region through the Kootenay-Boundary Higher Level Plan Order (HLPO). The LUGP provides procedures for preparing landscape unit objectives and strategies, including six elements of biodiversity, however clearly states the priority is to establish the spatial location of Old Growth Management Areas (OGMAs) and Wildlife Tree Retention (WTR) targets in every landscape unit. The spatial location of OGMAs are established to maintain biodiversity elements at the landscape level while the WTR targets are set to maintain elements at the stand level.
