Thank you for taking the time to comment. Government’s public consultation period on the topic of converting some or a portion of some volume-based forest licences to new or expanded area-based tree farm licences is now closed. The consultation period ran from April 1 to noon May 30, 2014.
Jim Snetsinger, a registered professional forester, who led the consultation process will now write a report for government on the input received during the consultation period and provide recommendations. His report will be posted here on this site in Summer 2014.
On this site you can still download the discussion paper, learn more about forest tenures, read the stakeholder submissions and email/written submissions, and read the blog conversation that occurred during the consultation period (below):
