Forest Stewardship Plan

XCFC Forest Stewardship Plan DRAFT - with Forest and Range Practices Act and Forest Planning and Practices Regulation excerpts

The Xaxli’p Community Forest Corporation (XCFC) Draft Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) includes the geographic areas of the Fountain Valley, Gibbs Creek watershed, and the upper reaches of Sallus Creek watershed. The FSP provides strategies and results for conserving and protecting timber and non-timber resources.   XCFC’s work focuses on eco-cultural restoration to reestablish natural ecological integrity and Xaxli’p cultural resources within the CFA area. The draft FSP has been prepared under the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA) and identifies Forest Development Units (FDU) in which harvesting and road building may occur over the five-year term.  Any harvesting conducted will be partial cutting that is guided by eco-cultural restoration priorities. The FSP does not address specific operational plans for cutting permits associated with eco-cultural restoration. These elements will be addressed in future planning and ongoing community involvement processes.

Xaxli’p Community Forest Corporation (XCFC) carries out ecologically and culturally sustainable land use for the benefit of Xaxli’p people, considering the needs of present and future generations.
