During the term of this current management plan, the following must be provided or undertaken by the licensee:
Improvement of site index information for the next determination;
Examination of opportunities to reduce regeneration delays;
Determination of the total area with lowered stocking standards and the management regime proposed for these areas; and
Correction of the wildlife habitat mapping error.
In addition, I expect BCFS staff to:
Validate their concerns about impediments to regeneration, and if any problems are identified, ensure they are addressed in future management plans; and
Resolve the operational concerns about the feasibility of achieving 85 percent of the harvest in the Knight Inlet area.
Other requirements have been noted in my Management Plan approval letter.
