The issue of Not Satisfactorily Re-stocked (NSR) area is hotly debated and important for the future of BC forests. Previously the letter from the BC Chief Forester (published in the BC Forest Professional) was posted on this website. Now we have posted an overview paper by Ben Parfitt (Silviculture Magazine) and the views of a retired Forest Service employee, Anthony Britneff (BC Forest Professional). The issue has attracted the Forest Practices Board who announced last month a Special Report study. More commentary on the issue can be seen on the Western Silviculture Contractors Association website from their2011 Conference Proceedings.
