This project was initiated by the Wildlife Tree Committee to provide land managers and researchers with a source of current literature pertinent to the maintenance and enhancement of wildlife trees and their users. Wildlife trees are defined as "standing dead or live trees with special characteristics that provide valuable habitat for the conservation or enhancement of wildlife". The Wildlife Tree Committee (WTC) is a multi-agency committee composed of representatives from the provincial Ministry of Forests and Ministry of Environment, Lands and Parks, the Canadian Wildlife Service, Workers' Compensation Board, industry representatives, and public interest groups from across the province. Formed in 1985, its purpose is to find ways to protect wildlife trees, particularly in the context of forestry operations.
