Visual landscape management and visual rehabilitation is a forest management challenge in visually sensitive areas. Federated Co-operative Limited (FCL) Tree Farm License (TFL) 33 along Shuswap Lake in British Columbia’s southern interior is one of these areas. Bordering the heavily used Shuswap Lake just north of Sicamous, B.C., the majority of the TFL is visible from the lake. The Integrated Visual Design1 for TFL 33 project was conducted to assist in the location and design of harvesting in the TFL that will rehabilitate the visual effects of previous harvesting, while considering other resource values or objectives associated with wildlife, lakeshore management, operability, timber supply, etc. This report and accompanying maps represent the results of this project.
