Quesnel Forest Landscape Plan

The Forest Landscape Plan Process

The Forest Landscape Planning process is designed to collaboratively develop, and implement, a strategic Forest Landscape Plan (FLP) for the Quesnel Timber Supply Area. The envisioned Plan will address provincial and First Nations' objectives, local values, and sustainability priorities. 

The planning process is intended to: 

  1. Describe the current state of forests. 
  2. Select a desired future forest based on shared forest management priorities. 
  3. Set the direction that forest companies and government must follow during forestry operations. 

Forest Landscape Plan Objectives:

  1. Seek the collaboration and support of First Nations, resource managers, land users, tenure holders, academia, and the public
  2. Create a Forest Landscape Plan that includes measurable outcomes to achieves:
    • Balancing a range or resource values (i.e., soils, visual quality, timber, forage and associated plant communities, water, fish, wildlife, biodiversity, recreation resources, resource features, and cultural heritage resources)
    • First Nations' interests and values
    • Local communities’ values
    • Protection and conservation of the environment
  3. Manage for a resilient landscape in a changing climate
  4. Provide clear direction, and outcomes, to forest companies and the province by identifying priorities and strategies to achieve these.  For licensees this will include clarity around their forestry operations.  For the province, this will include clarity around land investments to help address emerging changes and influences on the landbase.

Goal of Public Engagement

One of the key elements in this planning process is to ensure that public engagement happens along every step of the way.  To that end, we are looking for input on some key questions to help increase our understanding of local concerns.  Suggestions for improvements that can be made are also welcome.  We have created a summary of the current conditions within the planning area to help with this process.

After reading the condensed Summary of Current Forest Management, please take the time to answer the questionnaire in order to tell us:

    • What you value about the forest ecosystem in the area;
    • If current forest management is working;
    • If there are areas for improvement with forest management;
    • The direction you would like to see forest management take in the future
