Visual impact assessment guidebook by British Columbia( Book )

10 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Forest Practices Code of BC recognizes scenic landscapes as an integral component of the forest resource base. The Act requires a visual impact assessment (VIA) as part of the forest development plan and access management plan when timber harvesting and road construction are proposed in scenic areas with visual quality objectives (VQOs). The purpose of this guide is to document the recommended procedures for completing a VIA and to identify the evaluation criteria that will be used to assess whether or not proposed timber harvesting and road construction/modifications would meet the VQOs. It discusses VIA in the context of visual landscape management and in the context of forest development and access management planning. Then it goes on to procedures: planning and pre-field trip preparation, conducting fieldwork, and preparing and assessing simulations. Appendices cover sightline presentation criteria, photography data forms, digital terrain models submission criteria, calculating percent alteration in perspective view, and photograph presentation criteria

This document describes the contents of what silviculture prescription plans must contain in British Columbia to comply with the Forest Practices Code. It includes information on general requirements for the plan as well as specific requirements for tenure identification, management objectives, degree of consistency with other plans, ecological and resource information, forest health assessment and prescription, soil conservation, actions to accommodate forest resource values, silvicultural systems, harvesting, fire hazard abatement, silviculture treatments, stocking standards, and mapping

It summarizes the environmental characteristics of the Sub-Boreal Spruce Biogeoclimatic Zone (SBS) and three of its subzones, the SBSa or "pine - spruce" subzone, the SBSd or "spruce" subzone, and the SBSe or "subalpine fir" subzone.
