This booklet is a site-specific guide to the management of streamsides on Vancouver Island and South Coastal British Columbia for which logging is proposed. It should be considered an aid for field level personnel to determine what logging practices should be used and how much vegetation, if any, should be left along streamsides to provide for the requirements of non-timber users. The procedure deals with the maintenance of fisheries, wildlife, recreational, aesthetic, and water quality values while harvesting timber. It does not deal with stream rehabilitation or stream improvement projects, nor does it consider the trade-offs between resource values. However, it does provide information which may help to make those trade-offs.
