BC Timber Sales - Forest Stewardship Plans

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. An forest stewardship plan must be prepared by all forest agreement holders including BC Timber Sales.

The forest stewardship plan must be approved by the B.C. government before authority is given to agreement holders to carry out activities on the land, including harvesting and road related activities. Forest stewardship plans have a term of up to five years or, if extended, up to 10 years.

The forest stewardship plan's purpose is to:

  • Generally identify areas where forest development, such as harvesting and road work, may occur over the term of the FSP
  • Provide First Nations, stakeholders, the public, resources agencies and other agreement-holder’s an opportunity to review and comment on the agreement-holder’s plans for forest development in an area
  • Identify how the agreement-holder will be consistent with government objectives for the plan area through results and/or strategies proposed in the FSP. These government objectives address values such as:
    • Cultural heritage resources
    • Soils
    • Water
    • Fish
    • Wildlife
    • Biodiversity
    • Timber
    • Forage
    • Recreation
    • Resource features
    • Visual quality
