The Kaslo and District Community Forest Society (KDCFS) in 2018 was granted $50,000 from Forest Enhancement Society (FES) funding to complete a Landscape Level Wildfire Plan (LLWP) within its K3C tenure. This planning was undertaken in the wake of some of the largest and fiercest wildfires in recent British Columbia history.
The KDCFS area based tenure lies within the Kootenay Lake Timber Supply Area. Its boundaries span a gross area of 32,416 hectares (ha), of which roughly 19 percent consist of mountain tops and alpine tundra and 81 percent are productive forest. Roughly 10,000 ha of the productive forest are considered the “working forest”. Learn More
