SERN BC - Society for Ecosystem Restoration in Northern BC

Forest Carbon Initiative Reforestation Planning Project

This project will identify Crown lands in the Northeast, Omineca, and Skeena Forest Regions that could be reforested to achieve long-term forest and greenhouse gas/carbon benefits in conjunction with multiple ecosystem values. The objective of this work is to identify priority under stocked areas, in and out of the THLB, that do not have legal reforestation obligations and would benefit from reforestation treatments. Such areas may include fire, insect, and disease killed stands and other denuded areas such as seismic lines, non-status roads, and others. Treatment of candidate areas should provide benefits for multiple ecosystem values and not overlap with areas being assessed for treatment under other Provincial programs.
