A Forest Stewardship Plan (FSP) must be prepared by all forest agreement holders (Licensees), and approved by the provincial government before associated permits can be issued to the Licensee. As per the Forest and Range Practices Act (FRPA), an FSP must specify results or strategies that describe how the Licensee will ensure that their operations on the ground are consistent with government set objectives for soil, timber, wildlife, water, fish, biodiversity, visual quality, cultural heritage, recreation, invasive plants and natural range barriers. An FSP also describes how a Licensee will re-establish a healthy productive forest stand after harvest.
