New operational manual for commercial thinning in British Columbia


March 16, 2022

In British Columbia, the large-scale application of Commercial Thinning (CT) has become increasingly important over the last few years. CT is beneficial as a stand-tending operation as well as a way to provide fibre to the interior of the province to mitigate the shortage caused by large-scale disturbances such as bark beetle epidemics and fire. To that effect, FPInnovations recently published The Operational Manual for Commercial Thinning in British Columbia. CT is becoming more important in B.C. every year. Joint committees involving specialists from government, industry, academia, and research organizations are working together to find the best methods for application of CT in the province. …The Manual can be used by forest planners, field supervisors and machine operators in different phases of CT implementation. …The production of the manual was financially supported by Natural Resources Canada.
