Development Planning & Approvals

These assessments guide the planning and development stages of each project and help ensure that critical ecological features and functions are managed in a sustainable manner. Land and resource development projects of all sizes require proper environmentalassessments to identify potential impacts and benefits.


Wildfire & Fuel Management

Strategic plans and prescriptions to abate fuelhazards and fire risk should not aim to eliminate wildfire but rather to reduce the fire behaviour and potential negative impacts on the ecosystem. As such, negative ecological effects are being expressed within forested stands, including fuel accumulations, forest disease and insect outbreaks as well as unstable wildlife populations.
