The Kamloops and District Woodlot Association (KDWA) consists of thirty-three woodlots located in the Kamloops Forest District. The woodlot licensees each manage about 600 ha of crown land in conjunction with their private lands for forest production and enhancement. Each licensee prepares individual management plans and woodlot license plans to identify their management strategies.
As part of their management plans, the woodlot licensees address issues such as pest and fire risks and management. Since the 2003 fire-storm the fuel management component of the potential wildfire risks has become a high priority.
At the time of harvest, all woodlot licensees contribute additional stumpage money to a Forest Investment Account (FIA), where the money is re-distributed to suitable projects as identified by the Licensees, the Ministry of Forests and Range, and Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC). The Kamloops and District Woodlot Association has identified fire and pest management as a high priority for this fund, and now have the support of the governing agencies. The licensees would now like to move ahead on prescriptions and operational treatments.
