Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP)
The approved FSP for Tolko Thompson-Nicola Woodlands is in effect until March 31, 2017. The FSP defines the areas within which timber harvesting and road construction activities may occur during the term of the FSP. These activities must be conducted consistent with the results, strategies, measures and standards specified in the FSP.
Several times each year new cutblocks and roads are amended to the approved FSP through the information sharing referral process. These amendments will generally be available for a 60 day review period with notifications sent to applicable Stakeholders and First Nations. During the review period links to maps of the new cutblocks and roads will be posted below on this site.
If you are interested in reviewing our plans for a specific area or providing comments on an FSP Information Sharing Referral please feel free to contact our Area Supervisor – Planning Jamie Skinner at email@example.com.

Canadian Standards Association (CSA) / Sustainable Forest Management (SFM)
Thompson-Nicola Woodlands participated in the development of a Sustainable Forest Management Plan (SFM) with both Kamloops and Merritt TSA Licensees. The plan was developed through a public advisory process following the Canadian Standards Associations (CSA Z809) certification standards. In the developmental years there were two different plans developed – one for each TSA. By 2003 both parts of the operations were certified to two separate plans. In 2010 the plans from the Kamloops, Merritt and Lillooet TSAs were amalgamated during the re-write of the plan to the new Z808-08 standard.
For more information on Thompson-Nicola Woodlands' certification initiatives in both Kamloops and Merritt or to obtain a copy of these perspective plans please contact Jamie Skinner, or via phone at 250-578-2177.
