Environment

Burns Lake Community Forest is entirely encompassed with the Sub-boreal Spruce Zone.

Since time immortal this environment has been a dynamic fire regenerate and maintained ecosystem. Our landscape level management strategies must mimic this disturbance type to support the thriving ecosystem of plants and animals that it supports.

A pillar of the Community Forest is its approach to maintaining a thriving, healthy, sustainable forest for generations to come.

The BLCF is committed to this through protection of biological diversity, ecosystem restoration in areas impacted by the Mountain Pine Beetle, fire and other landscape disturbance agents exploring approaches that meet future needs and through maintaining its FSC certification.
