Forest Stewardship Plan

A forest stewardship plan (FSP) is a map-based, landscape-level plan of potential forest development activities that are intended to take place in the plan area. Forest agreement holders must prepare, and have approved by government, a forest stewardship plan before harvesting or road building activities can begin. The forest stewardship plan has a term of five years and may be renewed for additional terms.

Forest Management

A Management Plan contains detailed information to justify the size of the site and the proposed use of the land during the application process. The plan may evolve throughout the process in response to issues and concerns raised. The final management plan identifies how operating conditions, standards or criteria resulting from earlier stages will be met.

The objective of the TRCF organization is to enhance the quality of life of the residents through the sustainable use of forest resources, providing economic and social benefits while protecting environmental values such as water, soil air, biodiversity and wildlife habitat. The intention is to manage sustainably the forest resources, ensuring that non-timber resources are protected while not unduly constraining forest development activities such as road building and harvesting.
