In support of the ongoing Sustainable Forest Management Planning (SFMP) process for Canfor?s operating area in the Invermere TSA, and in order to prepare for potential certification under the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), modeling/forecasting of numerous scenarios was completed to illustrate long-term outcomes of management actions. The following scenarios were modeled:
1. Current Practice Base Case - Reflects current management in the DFA
2. Full FSC - Adds incremental management requirements needed to be compliant with FSC standards.
3. FSC Riparian - Only adds FSC riparian management requirements to the base case assumptions.
4. No Harvest - Only natural disturbances occur on the land base.
