Name of creator
Between 1978 and 1981 a new Prince George Forest District was created as part of the Prince George Forest Region. It was based on the boundaries of the previous Ranger District under that name. For the first few years it may have been divided into Prince George East and Prince George West areas.
As of 2021, the Prince George Forest District still exists, but as part of the Omineca Natural Resource Region.
Scope and content
This series consists of silviculture records from the Prince George Forest District, 1994-2004. The Ministry of Forests defines silviculture as “the art and science of controlling the establishment, growth, composition, health, and quality of forests and woodlands to meet the diverse needs and values of landowners and society on a sustainable basis.”
Silviculture obligation or prescription exemption case files allow for exceptions under section 129.11 of the Forest Act. Silviculture prescriptions document planned silviculture activities prior to logging begins. Activities can include seed collecting, site preparation, artificial and natural regeneration, brushing, spacing and stand tending in order to establish a new free growing crop of trees of a commercially valuable species. Silviculture prescriptions were introduced in the 1980s and exemptions were formally implemented in 1993.
Records include forms, applications, silviculture prescriptions, correspondence, maps and photos.
The ministries responsible for the Forest and Range Districts, and the years that they were responsible, are:
British Columbia. Ministry of Forests (1988-2005)
