New! On Oct. 9, 2012, the Ministry released Beyond the Beetle: A Mid-Term Timber Supply Action Plan, in response to the Special Committee on Timber Supply’s recommendations.
Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations staff have prepared numerous primers, backgrounders and fact sheet to help inform the public.
Primers and Presentations
In B.C., our public forests are managed for a multitude of values – not just timber production. These fact sheets provide an overview of some of those values.
The following backgrounders provide comprehensive information about beetle-affected timber supply areas. This includes maps and details on the status of land use plans, past allowable annual cuts, mid-term timber supply forecasts, silviculture investments, economic profiles, opportunities for diversification, opportunities for mitigation, and resource value implications for each area.
