Audit of Forest Planning and Practices: Quesnel Forest District – Woodlot Licence W0512 and Woodlot Licence W1516
In June 2009, the Board conducted a full-scope compliance audit of forest planning and practices on woodlot licences W0512 and W1516 in the Quesnel Forest District. Both of these woodlots are located within two hours’ driving distance of Quesnel.
The audit examined each woodlot licensee’s planning, field activities and obligations in the areas of:
- operational planning (including forest development plans, site plans and woodlot licence plans);
- timber harvesting;
- road construction, maintenance and deactivation;
- silviculture activities and obligations; and
- fire protection at active work sites.
All activities, planning and obligations for the period January 1, 2007, to the day of the field audit in June 2009, were included in the scope of the audit.
