Forest Practices Board: Four woodlots near Fort St. John, Canada, pass audit

Posted June 6, 2019
An audit of four woodlots in the Peace Natural Resource District, British Columbia, Canada, found all four met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act.

“Two of these woodlots suffered major timber losses due to wildfire, which significantly affected their operations,” said Kevin Kriese, Forest Practices Board chair. “The woodlot owners were able to effectively manage these challenges and still meet the requirements of legislation for their activities.”

The audit examined planning, timber harvesting, road construction and maintenance, reforestation and fire protection activities carried out on the woodlots between September 2016 and September 2018.

The Forest Practices Board is British Columbia’s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government.
