In 2005 the Morice-Lakes IFPA members (led by Canfor) proposed developing a multi-block survey system and landscape level stocking standards to measure reforestation performance within the IFPA. Perceived benefits included: ? Flexibility to invest first in those treatments/sites which yield greatest gains at least cost. ? Opportunity to better allocate area or emphasis to biodiversity objectives. ? A better link between reforestation effort and timber supply analysis. ? A potential opportunity to link AAC allocations to regeneration performance. ? Government review and tracking at the multi-block level. ? Reduced survey costs.
