A. The Chilcotin Military Training Area (CMTA), located north of the small community of Riske Creek and about 47 kilometres west of Williams Lake, consists of approximately 41,000 hectares of land owned by the Department of National Defence (DND) and is used as a military training area. The management and rehabilitation of  forest resources on this property is the responsibility of the Department of Indian Affairs and Northern Development (DIAND) through an Order-in-Council P.C. O.I.C  1961-807.

In the last decade, this property has also been adversely impacted and approximately 4,000 hectares (Ha) of Lodgepole pine dominated stands in the western half of the property have been damaged by the Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB).

In 2013 DIAND undertook stocking and survival silviculture surveys in areas previously logged under Timber Mark EDULG (Winter 2013), which comprised roughly 1000Ha of  the total  1,000Ha of the CMTA land base. This was specifically done to provide data for the 2015 Reforestation  program of this small area. Other required silviculture surveys were not initiated at this time due to lack of resources.

DIAND is required for inventory purposes to initiate Free to Grow / Stocking silviculture surveys on historical RESULTS based openings harvested between 1969 and 1988, which comprises  approximately 11,650Ha. (See attached Overview Map) Inventory information on the health of these juvenile stands has never been collected and is  required to verify if the stands of timber require silviculture treatments or replanting areas that are Not Satisfactorily Restocked (NSR).


DIAND is looking to establish a contract to carry out the following silviculture surveys on the CMTA Lands:

Visual assessments

Sample plot surveys for Free to Grow / Stocking Surveys on provincially catalogued RESULTS based openings

Map survey results by GIS and provide PDF and shape file data

Note plantability in areas not satisfactorily restocked (NSR)
