Mark record


The British Columbia Forest Service (BCFS) and the Canadian Forest Service (CFS) have a long history of collaboration across a wide range of functions and topics. This includes research, technology transfer and extension, co-management and delivery of federal–provincial agreements, and partnering on national and international initiatives. As the BCFS approaches its centennial, it is interesting to examine the achievements that have come from this 100-year relationship. The nature of the various projects and initiatives undertaken over the years reflects the evolving nature of forest management, and the relative strengths of the CFS and BCFS have contributed to successful outcomes in many collaborative initiatives. Looking forward, we believe a continuation of CFS–BCFS partnering will benefit both institutions, and will help ensure management of BC’s forests continues to balance the multiple needs of current and future generations.
