This report provides current, comprehensive, and easy-to-read forest resource statistics for anyone interested in the forest resources in the Province of British Columbia.

The Ministry of Forests 'Resources Inventory Branch compiles and maintains forest inventory information (statistics and maps) for all land in the province. This includes federal lands within Timber Supply Areas (TSAs). On Tree Farm Licences (TFLs) the licensee is required to perform the inventory and provide the data according to a standard set by the Forest Service.

Forest cover data are obtained at district and regional levels and are linked with geographic data (base maps, ownership and administrative boundaries) to produce an inventory/database that provides information on the location, areal extent, physical characteristics, and condition of the forest.

The Forest Inventory Program currently maintains approximately 7,000 map sheets at 1:20,000 scale that describe forest, range, and recreation resources. Map sheets are updated for changes every 2 years (Forest Inventory Manual 1992). With the exception of managed forest units, timber inventories are not available for most private land (Determining the Accuracy of Forest Inventories 1993).
