Demonstrate SFM-actions required

The BC Government and forest industry promote a high level of Sustainable Forest Management.  Their rationale is usually based on the existing legislation, regulations and policies and the fact a large percentage of BC forests have third part forest certification.  However, there are a number of deficiencies in this approach that could be rectified, in-part, by adopting the recommendations presented in SFM-what needs to be done to demonstrate status.  Taking these actions would either show support for their positions or identify the required actions to get to this point.  Regardless, these actions would demonstrate to communities and the public the level of SFM in BC forests.  For several decades we have known and had the capability of doing this.  It just needs leadership and commitment by Government and the industry to practice long-term forest stewardship.
