The Bowers & Needa Lakes are a popular recreational destination, with both public and private interests. These lakes have been captured in the visual landscape inventory and have visual quality objectives that range from retention to partial retention to modification.
A large component of the surrounding forest has lodgepole pine within it which has been recently impacted by mountain pine beetle. Visual quallity objectives will be exceeded where economic recovery of pine-leading stands is proposed. Emphasis is required on visual resource management principles such as line and form in such cases.
By including areas planned for harvest in the new future by BCTS, there are four harvest entries planned spread out in 25 years intervals.
