This guide is a technical support document intended to help forestry practitioners collect the information they need to prepare a silviculture treatment regime and silviculture prescription in accordance with Forest Practices Code legislation. It deals primarily with the collection and stratification of site-specific field data. It has been designed to promote consistent collection of field data on Field Forms FS 39A and FS 39B. This guide is not meant to be a substitute for education, training, or experience in the field. The use of this guide is not a statutory requirement and much of the data described in it is not directly required by legislation. An individual practicing due diligence, however, will collect appropriate information to develop site-specific prescriptions and the accompanying forms have proven quite popular for this data collection.
