A bird's eye view of small tenure holdings in British Columbia

John Cathro, Susan Mulkey, Tom Bradley


This extension note provides a spatial description of the distribution of small, area-based tenures in the province of British Columbia. It summarizes important socio-economic and biophysical data, including the locations of small tenures. The unique management implications associated with such distribution are highlighted, such as multiple and often overlapping values, implications of mountain pine beetle infestations, climate change, forest restoration, and socio-economic constraints and opportunities.
