Audit of Forest Planning and Practices: Peace Natural Resource District – Woodlot Licence W2101

As part of the Forest Practices Board’s 2018 compliance audit program, the Board randomly selected the Peace Natural Resource District as the location for a full scope compliance audit. Within the district, the Board selected five woodlot licenses near Fort St John for audit: W0604, W1780, W1781, W1950 and W2101. This report covers W2101.

W2101 is located approximately 120 kilometres northwest of Fort St. John and about 55 kilometres north of Hudson’s Hope.

The audit found that the licensees’ practices mostly complied with FRPA and the WA, but found a significant non-compliance for harvesting within a riparian reserve area.
