Pearse is a professor emeritus at the University of British Columbia, a forester RPF (Ret), and a member of the Order of Canada.5/5(1). A framework was developed for the construction of an objectives hierarchy for multicriteria decisions in land use planning. The process began through identification of fundamental objectives; these were iteratively decomposed into a hierarchy of subobjectives until a level was reached at which subobjectives had measurable by: 9.   Goals / Objectives (1) Develop a clearer representation and understanding of the dynamic spatial forest allocation problem in order to facilitate the development of better policies for improving intergenerational welfare. (2) Evaluate the potential of a new harvesting rights auction mechanism for satisfying growing timber demand without compromising the supply of non-timber amenities.

This study deals with the multiple use management of forests. The main objectives of the study are i) to review the literature on economic theory of multiple use and examine various approaches taken by foresters to practice multiple use, and ii) to compare, with respect to timber supply, rent and selected environmental indicators, two alternative forest land use systems under three timber Cited by: 2.

Introduction British Columbia’s forests are legendary. BC forests have been the economic, cultural and political lifeblood of the province – from the intimate relationships of First Nations with the life-sustaining cedar and sacred trees like the Golden Spruce, to the harrowing tales of lumberjacks among the towering evergreens of the coast, to the role of BC forests in feeding the.

Forest harvesting, especially on the scale and by the methods cur- rently dominant in British Columbia, has an extremely visible impact upon the landscape. Many visitors, residents and the tourist industry are becom- ing increasingly vocal about the detrimental impact of forest Cited by: 4.

Land management associated with forest practices in British Columbia (BC) over the last three decades has led to the development of terrain stability hazard mapping. Terrain stability mapping (TSM) in BC originated in the early s, when forest harvesting was progressing from valley bottoms onto steep, unstable terrain, which led to an increase in harvesting- and road-related by: 4.

Since the restructuring and enactment of forestry legislation inthe B.C. Ministry of Forests has placed increased emphasis on Forest Management Planning as a strategic level of planning to achieve its broadly stated goal of Integrated Resource Management (IRM).

This has taken place as a result of the recognition by resource managers that the broad implications of the more localized.

The Province of British Columbia is taking action to maintain the forest sector’s position as a driving force in B.C.’s economy, especially in rural communities.

The forest sector is a critical economic generator for B.C. It supports healthy, stable communities, and provides jobs for tens of thousands of British Columbians.

The ability to quantify accurately the amount of carbon that would be sequestered by forest carbon project activities is critical to their success.

The guidelines were developed primarily for management purposes, but are generally applicable to research, with modifications to meet specific research objectives. The purpose of this course is to improve forest management in British Columbia by improving the ability of silviculture sureyors to estimate site index – one of the key variables that needs to be considered for effective forest management decision making.

The ability to develop permaculture features, soil fertility, and forest garden plantings are key to the success of this farming model. Without land ownership or a long-term (lifetime) lease on farmland, a farmer has little security.

A farmer’s labour and cost investment in land and soil improvements can be lost in. Carbon sequestration proposals on land typically involve inert materials that can be used in construction or buried underground with relatively little surface disturbance.

Reliable estimates of the surface area requirements of the passive absorption apparatus are unavailable.
