The purpose of this project is to evaluate the implications on various OGMA's on operational plans. The intent is strategic in nature and is not to produce operational plans, rather to look at how operations can influence strategic objective setting. Over the past several years Pope & Talbot Ltd., has been developing a sustainable forest management framework to support resource planning, operational practices, and their Forest Stewardship Plan. One of the biggest remaining challenges is linking strategic resource planning direction to operational forestry realities and, in turn, informing strategic analyses with on-the-ground forestry knowledge. As part of an on-going effort to coordinate strategic direction with operational practices, forest planners and practitioners completed an operational timber blocking exercise within Tree Farm License 8.
