Proposed Community Forest Expansion
The threat of wildfires is a growing concern for our residents. Large areas of Crown Land have a build up of old and dead trees and other woody debris. With hot, dry summers these conditions create serious wildfire hazards for our communities.
By forming a collaborative partnership and managing this land through a Community Forest Agreement, we can reduce hazards, promote land conversion to agriculture and agroforestry, support biodiversity, and expand cultural and economic diversity.
The City of Prince George has successfully managed its Community Wildfire Program for 6 years. By creating a partnership and adding Crown Land to a 25 year license, we can build on this success and gain more control over our community's future.
