Handbook No. 9 is the sequel to handbook No. 4, Timber Development Planning for the British Columbia Interior: The Total-Chance Concept, which was published by the Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) in 1983. Handbook No. 4 described the steps required at that time to prepare a total-chance harvesting development plan. Handbook No. 9 describes how timber-development operations might have progressed since 1983, and what additional factors must be incorporated into onward planning in response to new technologies, attitudes, guidelines, and policies affecting forest management.
