Best Management Practices for
Integrated Harvest Operations in BC
Utilizing forest harvest residue is an issue of growing urgency in the British Columbia forest industry. In B.C., forest residues at roadside have traditionally been burned to mitigate fire hazard or, occasionally, they have been left to rot. With an increasing demand for energy and concern over climate change and air quality, burning may no longer be the most desirable practice for dealing with residues. Further, there is an increasing demand for harvest residues by both primary and secondary users to fuel the growing bioeconomy in B.C.
