The need for a BC forest vision
Many citizens who follow forestry in BC are concerned the current management of our forests will not deliver the societal expectations over the long‐term. However, no formal statement such as a BC forests vision and goals or a transparent and trusted monitoring and assessment system exist to provide a measure as to whether forest management practices support their view.
The public expects Government will manage the BC Crown forest lands in the public interest over the long term and not diminish them into the future. Collectively, these can be summarized in the overall objective of achieving healthy and resilient communities which depend on conservation and use of healthy forests.
