Natural resource road act project : discussion paper( )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Currently, resource roads in British Columbia are administered through provisions found in up to 11 different laws, many of which regulate a specific industry or activity. Often resource roads are built for a specific purpose but used by multiple industries as well as commercial operations and the public. The B.C. government is revisiting the existing legislative framework with the intent to better serve the current and future needs of all resource roads users. It intends to consolidate resource road legislation into a single act the Natural Resource Road Act (NRRA). The goal of this paper is to explain the proposed principles and key policies being used to develop the NRRA

Stream channel morphology : major fluvial disturbances in logged watersheds on the Queen Charlotte Islands by R. G Roberts( Book )

7 editions published between 1986 and 1988 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fish/Forestry Interaction Program (FFIP) was initiated in 1979 to resolve management uncertainties in areas of intensive mass wastage in the Queen Charlotte Islands (Poulin 1984). This study represents one component of the project and investigates stream channels in which major deposition of fluvial sediments was observed. Reconnaissance investigations of disturbed stream habitats early in the Fish/Forestry Interaction Program studies identified extensive, recently accumulated sediments in mid-reaches of some streams. Channel width has increased by up to 10 times, and the depositional zone is of order 1 km in length. From historical air photo and land use studies it was determined that the sediment wedges were initiated by streamside and in-stream logging practices before 1970. A long term sediment budget was estimated for each basin to determine the relative importance of adjacent stream bank erosion (on-site land use effect) and other sediment sources - including off-site land use effects - in contributing to the sediment wedges. The most significant sediment sources in each basin were assessed in the field: minor sources were estimated from regional results. Stream banks and landslides were estimated to contribute two-thirds to three-quarters of all sediment delivered to the streams, with stream banks accounting for half or more of the sediment in three of four cases. Sediment stored in the wedges varies from all of the +1-mm input since disturbance, to possibly as little as one-quarter of the material. Long-term sediment outputs as bed load transport vary from 0 to about 10 000 m3/yr. Because far more sediment is stored in the channels than is annually transported out, the wedges will persist for a long time."

Channel morphology of unlogged, logged, and debris torrented streams in the Queen Charlotte Islands by Daniel Lewis Hogan( Book )

5 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the fall-winter of 1978-79, frequent high-intensity rain stormsresulted in extensive mass wasting across much of the Queen Charlotte Islands, with preliminary surveys indicating that many of the failures were probablyinduced by steep-slope logging. The British Columbia Ministry of Forests andLands, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment and Parks, and CanadaDepartment of Fisheries and Oceans attempted, by implementation of the 5-yearFish/Forestry Interaction Program, initiated in 1981, to resolve issuesconcerning the effects of steep-slope logging and develop prescriptivesolutions for avoiding or minimizing landslide damage. This study comparesthe morphology of coastal, gravel-bed streams in two logged, one logged anddebris torrented, and two unlogged watersheds in the Queen Charlotte Islands. The influence of both logging and direct mass wasting events onchannel morphology and on the in-stream physical habitat ofsalmonids is quantified. The comparison also provides a basis fordetermining habitat rehabilitation criteria for damaged channels. Pools andriffles are discussed in detail
Mass wasting on the Queen Charlotte Islands : a regional inventory by Philip Gimbarzevsky( Book )

6 editions published between 1984 and 1988 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This report provides a regional inventory of the occurrence and frequency of landslide activity on the Queen Charlotte Islands. The survey was based entirely on a systematic analysis of small scale (1:50 000) panchromatic aerial photographs. The survey results are presented on a 1:250 000 scale overview map, "Slope Failure Intensity", which displays the concentration levels of landslides in 3153 UTM cells expressed as three intensity classes: Moderate (one to three failure per square kilometer), Severe (four to seven failures per square kilometer), and Extreme (more than eight failures per square kilometer). The analysis of frequency patterns in UTM cells grouped into nine classes of landscape attributes indicates a strong correlation of landslide intensity with topographic, physiographic, and climatic Characteristics of the landscape. The most significant factor that exerts a strong influence over the intensity level is usually a combined effect of topography, climatic conditions, and physical land characteristics."

The effects of fertilization on the early growth of planted seedlings : a problem analysis by Robert Peter Brockley( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A substantial amount of seedling fertilization research has been undertaken in British Columbia and elsewhere in recent years, but results have been inconsistent and much has not been reported in the scientific literature. This report reviews and summarizes available seedling fertilization information to identify promising treatments and treatment combinations and to make specific recommendations regarding the direction and scope of future seedling fertilization research and operations. Special reference is made to interior spruce because of its special problems with p̀lanting check', although many of the findings may apply to other conifer species

"This Field guide describes the ecological units of the Rocky Mountain Trench, Prince George Forest Region. It represents aides to the identification of these units and management interpretations for each."
Juvenile height growth of four species on four sites in the CWHb1 variant by Stephen A. Y Omule( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aside from stand density, species selection is one of the major factors a forester can manipulate to influence future yield and value of forests. The relative height growth performance of various tree species on common sites with well-defined site quality is therefore of considerable interest. This paper developed and compared the juvenile height growth curves of Douglas-fir, Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and western redcedar planted on four site units within the Windward Submontane Maritime Wetter Coastal Western Hemlock variant on the west coast of Vancouver Island. The paper is based on 26-year data and observations

Trials of the Sinkkilä HMF scarifier in north central British Columbia by I. B Hedin( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of Scandinavian scarifiers in Canadian boreal forests has become common with the introduction and acceptance of Swedish and Finnish spot scarifiers and disc trenchers. The Sinkkila was used as a patch scarifier in Finland for the last 20 years and in response to the interest in inverted humus mounds, it was further developed as a combination patch-mounding machine. This report details 2 areas treated by this scarifier/mounder during the 1986 field season. It outlines difficulties encountered in the trial period, and describes the results of the treatment and the potential for modification and use in the future

"This guide contains information, condensed for field use, on the identification and interpretation of biogeoclimatic and ecosystematic units in the Coastal Western Hemlock Zone, Northern Drier Maritime Zone (CWHf). The area covered includes most of the low and middle elevation forests of the central part of the Kalum Timber Supply Area and some of the middle elevations of the westernmost Kispiox Timber Supply Area."
Vegetation development after clearcutting and site preparation in the SBS zone by Evelyn Hope Hamilton( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The changes in floristic composition and structure that occur after clearcutting and site preparation in four ecosystems in the Sub-Boreal Spruce Zone are outlined. Responses of species to burning and mechanical site preparation are examined and the strategies for recolonization and survival used by different species are investigated. Implications of these findings to ecological classification and management to meet silvicultural and wildlife objectives are addressed
Comparative height growth to age 28 for seven species in the CWHd Subzone by Stephen A. Y Omule( Book )

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In reforestation, knowledge of the height growth performance of young stands within well-defined ecosystem units is of considerable interest. Experimental Project 368 of the British Columbia Ministry of Forests and Lands provides a unique opportunity to compare the juvenile height growth Douglas-fir, grand fir, amabilis fir, Port-Orford cedar, Sitka spruce, western hemlock, and western redcedar on a moist and nutrient-medium site within the Hypermaritime Coastal Western Hemolock subzone on the west coast of Vancouver Island
Mechanical site preparation and forest regeneration in Sweden and Finland : implications for technology transfer by J. A Hunt( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Swedish and Finnish (Fennoscandian) mechanical site preparation experience is extensive, therefore an understanding of its evolution should benefit development of site preparation in Canada. This report includes some background to aspects of forest management in Fennoscandia that influence silvicultural practice and technology transfer; a synopsis of past and future directions in site preparation and reforestation; guidelines and considerations affecting forest regeneration; a description of the main implements considered to be appropriate for use in Canada; some implications for British Columbia; and a summary of technical information
Total and merchantable volume equations for small coastal Douglas-fir by Stephen A. Y Omule( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Several published tree volume equations are currently used in B.C., some in summaries of appraisal and inventory cruise data and some in studies of growth and yield and tree improvement of coastal Douglas-fir. These models are generally unsuitable for estimating volumes of small trees (under 5 cm in diameter) because of limitations of the model or sample data used. An opportunity to evaluate the existing tree volume prediction equations for coastal Douglas-fir was provided by a new large data set (about 1400 trees) recently acquired by B.C. Ministry of Forests and Lands in addition to the data used by the previous analysts. The study evaluated the prediction bias of the existing total and merchantable volume equations for coastal Douglas-fir small trees, arbitrarily defined here as trees having a diameter at breast height of less than 45 cm. In addition, new volume prediction equations were developed for the small trees, based on the expanded data set, to be used in summaries of Research Branch growth and yield plot data
The effects of black army cutworm on backlog reforestation efforts in the North Thompson Valley by T. F Maher( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The black army cutworm (BAC) recently became a pest in newly established coniferous plantations throughout the central interior of the province. Reforestation efforts have been steadily increasing, with emphasis placed on the planting of backlog areas (harvested more than 3 years ago) which at present are "not satisfactorily stocked" (NSR). Because of the large amount of NSR land, the consistent association of BAC infestations with recent broadcast burning, and the high proportion of broadcast burned sites with a recorded history of BAC populations, a problem analysis was undertaken. This report presents the results of that analysis, conducted through a literature review of scientific reports and history records of both the Canadian Forestry Service and the B.C. Forest Service; resurveying of 4 plantations damaged by the BAC; and interviewing of all personnel actively engaged in BAC research within the province
