    Raven Tree

    Forests, Lands, Natural Resources and Rural Development Minister Doug Donaldson announced in February 2018 that a Panel would review British Columbia (BC) Forest Inventory Program. The announcement included the Panel members as Bill Bourgeois, Clark Binkley, Valerie LeMay, Ian Moss and Nick Reynolds.

    Key functions of BC’s Forest Inventory Program include:

      Undertaking new forest inventories to replace older ones

      Maintaining existing forest inventories through updates

      Ground sampling and re-measurement of natural (unmanaged) stands

      Monitoring the post-harvest growth of managed stands

      Providing models to project stand development and future yield.

    The BC Forest Inventory Panel undertook a review of the Forest Inventory Program between April and September 2018. The Panel’s work included reviewing the existing program, requesting and then evaluating written submissions, interviewing key users and developers, and assessing programs in other provinces and jurisdictions. This report summarizes the Panel’s findings and provides recommendations on possible improvements to the BC Forest Inventory Program.
