Forests for Tomorrow  
Planning, Reforestation and Brushing Focused in Catastrophic Event-Impacted Management Units  

The Forests for Tomorrow program was introduced by government in 2005 with a total of $86M being allocated to Forests for Tomorrow in the 2004/05 – 2007/2008 provincial government budget.

The program aims to improve the long-term timber supply through the re-establishment of young forests on land that would otherwise remain under-productive. The program focuses on land that is primarily within the timber harvesting land base yet outside of forest industry obligations.

The program emphasizes surveying, site preparation and planting. These treatments are guided by strategic level program planning, seed supply planning, silviculture strategies and timber supply analyses.

The up-front overview surveys and program planning, will formulate a clear and full picture of a cost-effective program and budget profile. It is expect that this will be a program with a long term funding level of at least 50 million per year that would continuing until the NSR areas have been reduced to levels that do not pose serious timber supply problems.

The initial priority is aggressive reforestation of the 2003 and 2004 wildfires and brushing in Timber Supply Area (TSA) and Tree Farm License (TFL) management units most affected by the MPB infestations.

Silviculture strategies of the 12 severely MPB-impacted management units are being undertaken to help optimize the application of available funding towards the goals of improving the future quantity and quality of both habitat and timber supply.
