WSCA and Ministry Review BC Planting Inspection System
The B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources has
begun a review of its thirty-year-old planting inspection system after
WSCA contractors questioned whether the standard reflected current
practices across the industry. Contractors have alleged that there
are in fact two standards in place: one used by industry and one
by government. Furthermore, they say, the requirements described
as required under the old standard may not always reflect the
best science and experience on the ground regarding establishing
vigorous plantations.
