Public Land Forest Management Plans Comment Page
What is a forest management plan?
A forest management plan provides a template or plan of action to guide the property owner or manager and help them meet a goal or set of goals for that forest land. These goals may be improving timber quality, creating wildlife habitat creation, developing recreational access, encouraging biodiversity and much more.
The plan is based on an assessment of the existing forest to determine its current health and productivity, identify opportunities and challenges and based on those factors, develop a plan of action.
Why does the Province prepare forest management plans for public lands?
Forest Management plans are developed for properties managed by the Forests, Fish and Wildlife Division to inform the public about the primary goals for each public property and the proposed activities that will be undertaken to achieve those goals. In most cases, these activities will address multiple goals related to wildlife, soil and water conservation, biodiversity and timber products and the recreational and aesthetic values of these lands.
Where can I get a copy of these management plans?
Plans are posted on-line for 30 days to allow the public to comment. Each plan contains the community name, property identification number and the date the plan was prepared, updated or revised.
