2022 to ongoing
In conjunction with Frontline Operations Group and BC Parks, Forsite is coordinating the development of a wildfire risk reduction prescription in Fintry Protected Area.
The project encompasses a total of 115 hectares and is intended to reduce the potential fire intensity within the Protected Area and adjacent to homes. While the prescription details are still in development, the prescription will primarily focus on reducing surface fuel loading, removing ladder fuel continuity, and removing suppressed conifers to increase canopy spacing.
The treatment specifications will be developed in accordance with land use objectives and will consider the inputs from stakeholder and First Nation engagement to ensure that the tactics employed will balance other land use values present within the project area.
2018 to present
In follow-up to the city’s Community Wildfire Protection Plan, Forsite is involved in the development of fuel management prescriptions to support ongoing treatments. Work involves a range of sites including BC Parks, municipal lands and general provincial crown lands with treatments including both lighter touch hand-based treatments to more mechanized treatments that are generating volumes for local milling, while reducing fuels and balancing other stewardship considerations.
A wildfire management planning process that identifies, analyses and evaluates wildfire risks to support an improved understanding of the landscape.
