About this Event

Silviculture to the Rescue!

Many may remember the theme of the CSC 2017 winter meeting “MITIGATING PROJECTED TIMBER SUPPLY DECLINES”. We continue with this important theme as the allowable annual cut (AAC) for the Coast has declined 38 %, from 24 million m3 in 1990 to 15 million m3 in 2020, primarily due to exclusions from the Timber Harvesting Land Base (THLB) (e.g. establishment of conservancies, parks and ecological reserves). This trend in THLB exclusion may continue given increased public pressure for old growth protection, wildlife habitat preservation and general environmental concerns. Recent wildfires, climate change, insects and disease may also negatively affect our growing stock and the Coastal AAC. Spatial and/or temporal forest cover constraints also exert downward pressure on the harvest. Our Coastal forest industry may be in danger unless we are able to increase merchantable volume from a declining land-base through improved silvicultural practices.

Can our present silvicultural applications do this?

Speakers at the 2020 CSC workshop will discuss some silviculture basics, such as: such as

• adequate regeneration

• applicable stocking standards

• brushing

• pre commercial and commercial thinning

• tree improvement

• fertilization

• forest health and integrating silvicultural surveys into inventory modelling.
