 Deputy Minister's
Message
The year 1980 was a mixed one for the
province's forest industry. The timber
harvest declined slightly to 75 million cubic
metres, approximately 1 million less than the
record harvest of 1979. Forest revenues to the
province increased to $514 million, surpassing the
1979 record by $55 million.
The pulp and paper industry prospered as prices
increased and operating rates remained at or near
capacity through most of the year. In sharp
contrast, the lumber and plywood sectors
experienced lower prices and reduced production
as residential construction activity declined in
both Canada and the United States in response to
record high interest rates. In foreign markets for
pulp, paper and solid wood products, provincial
producers continued to benefit substantially from
the lower value of the Canadian dollar relative to
other currencies, especially the United States
dollar.
The demand for lumber and plywood is
expected to increase slowly through 1981 as
economic conditions improve. The demand for
pulp and paper will probably soften somewhat, but
a large decline in provincial operating rates is not
expected. The longer-term prospects for the
provincial forest industry remain favourable and
are reflected in the nearly $1.4 billion of capital
and repair expenditures undertaken by the
industry in 1980 to equip, modernize and expand
its production facilities. The increase in
investment expenditures was concentrated in the
pulp and paper sector where several significant
expansions are presently underway.
Provincial revenues from range use rose from
$777 000 in 1979 to $1 283 000 in 1980. This rise
in revenues was largely attributable to an increase
in grazing fees, reflecting an increase in the
average price of cattle sold in the previous year.
The use of Crown range increased by
approximately 22 000 animal unit months

The Structure of
the Ministry
 The ministry established its present structure to
decentralize administrative authority. The
district, region and headquarters staffs work
together to decentralize decision-making. The
ministry headquarters staff define policy and
provide overall guidance. They also advise the
deputy minister and consequently the minister
and government on all matters relating to forest
and range policy.
Headquarters
Organization
As shown in the organization chart on page
11, the ministry headquarters staff is
organized into the following four divisions:
— Forestry;
— Timber, Range and Recreation;
— Finance and Administration;
— Operations.
Each of the four divisions is headed by an
assistant deputy minister who reports to the
deputy minister. These four officials, together
with the deputy minister, constitute the ministry's
executive. In addition to the four assistant deputy
ministers, the directors of the Information
Services Branch and the Strategic Studies Branch
report directly to the deputy minister.
The functions of each division are summarized
below.
The Forestry Division ensures that all Crown
forest and rangelands are managed to provide the
greatest long-term benefits for British Columbia.
The assistant deputy minister of this division is
also the chief forester. The Forestry Division
maintains a comprehensive inventory of all the
province's forest and range resources and assesses
these lands in terms of their present and potential
uses. The division comprises the following five
branches:
— Planning;
— Inventory;
— Research;
— Silviculture;

Organization
For administrative purposes, the province is
divided into six forest regions. Each is
administered from its own regional office by a
regional manager. Each region is further
subdivided into forest districts which are under
the direction of district managers. The internal
organization of each regional office, shown on
page 13, is analogous to that of ministry
headquarters. Three regional staff managers
provide advice and services to the regional
manager and to the various district managers and
field personnel. Regional office personnel are
responsible for servicing, coordinating and
monitoring the activities of all field personnel
operating out of district offices throughout each
region.
The staff of each regional office develops
regional programs and plans and ensures that all
policies, programs and procedures originating
from ministry headquarters are administered
consistently and effectively throughout the
region.

The Structure of the Ministry    13
   Information Services
Information Services Branch creates public
awareness, understanding and support for the
goals and programs of the ministry by informing
the news media, industry, educational
institutions, ministry employees and the
community. The branch's four operating sections
advise and assist the deputy minister, the
executive, branch directors, regional managers
and other staff with internal and external
communications.
The editorial services section helps plan and
produce a wide variety of print materials.
Working in cooperation with other ministry
branches, this section's major projects in 1980
included the preparation of a comprehensive
information package on the ministry's five-year
resource program, a 36-page colour brochure on
forest fire and pest protection, the 1979 Annual
Report, numerous news releases to the province's
media, and a monthly employee newsletter. This
section is also responsible for the popular quarterly
magazine, ForesTalk. The B.C. chapter of the
Graphic Designers of Canada, in 1980, gave the
magazine an award for design excellence.
The public affairs section handles enquiries,
promotes community relations, and coordinates
tours and special events. In 1980, these projects
included the 50th anniversary celebrations at the
Green Timbers Nursery and displays in Princeton,
Vernon, Vancouver and Victoria.
The audio visual section provides still pictures,
films and photographic laboratory services.
During the year, it released "Chewers of Wood", a
half-hour film on the mountain pine beetle, and
began production of two new films on backlog
reforestation and tree improvement. Slide
productions with accompanying narration were
also created for the Protection and Silviculture
Branches.
The ministry library serves ministry staff
throughout the province. In 1980, these services
were improved through the expansion of facilities
in new and larger quarters, the acquisition of a
16    Report of the Ministry, 1980
computer terminal for on-line literature se;h
and the creation of an in-house data base nil
system.
Six regional information officers provided
range of communications services at the re.ii
and district operating levels. During the yei
most were active in the presentation and
discussion of numerous Timber Supply Are
reports and a growing number of public I
involvement programs.
Strategic Studies
Strategic Studies Branch advises the
deputy minister and other members ol
the ministry executive on matters pertaimi
— forest and range policies and prograr
— the state of the forest and ranchirrjjM
industries;
— issues/interactions between mining
programs and those of other governri
agencies.
In 1980, the branch maintained its role
ministry representative on inter-agency I
committees assessing resource managemer
policies in the province. The branch was ai
active in the work currently carried out by
number of national organizations such as t
Canadian Council of Resource and Enviroi
Ministers (CCREM) and the Forest Indusl
Development Committee (FIDO).
The branch prepared the ministry's ^m
five-year resource program. This first upda
included a modified program structure Sb
consistent with the ministry's budgeting ai
staffing process; an expanded silviculture pi
to reflect projected increases in timber hail
several regions; increased expenditures on!
research; and a proposal for the accelerate
treatment of forest lands which have not h

Jyear, the branch expanded
: tly its economic analyses of forest
eent practices.
Planning
Planning Branch develops forest management
planning systems to implement the
ministry's five-year resource program. The branch
is also responsible for coordinating ministry
resource planning systems with those of other
resource ministries.
In 1980, major activities of the branch included
completion of 14 Timber Supply Area (TSA)
analyses, development and refinement of
computer planning systems, delineation of
additional sites for provincial forests,
development of a ministry program for public
involvement, and review and amendment of Tree
Farm Licence (TFI.) inventory and allowable cut
calculation procedures. These activities are
summarized as follows:
Timber Supply Areas: The branch has now
completed 25 of the 33 TSA yield analyses. The
remainder will be completed in 1981.
Computer Planning Systems: The branch has
investigated and is currently testing several
simulation and optimization systems for predicting
forest growth. These planning systems, namely
MUSYC (Multiple Use Sustained Yield
Calculations), TREES (Timber Resource
Economic Estimation Systems), and IPS
(Interactive Planning System) are being tested in
cooperative studies with industry foresters. The
results of such studies will be used to assist the
branch in future analyses of forest resource use and
management opportunities throughout the
province.
Provincial Forests Program: The objective of the
provincial forests program is to designate the land
base required to maintain provincial forest and
range resource production. This program has been
in existence for many years and some 97
provincial forests had already been established
over nearly half of the province. The current
phase of the program is to review the remainder of
Branch Reports    17
 the province and to establish approximately 50
additional provincial forests.
Public Involvement Program: The branch
developed a program for public involvement in
the tesolution of conflicting forest resource uses.
As part of this program, the branch prepared a
handbook and convened a seminar on public
involvement. The seminar was attended by
representatives of resource agencies, universities,
industry and members of the general public. As a
result, the branch amended the handbook and
commenced training of ministry staff.
Allowable Cut Calculations: A task force,
comprising ministry staff and representatives of
TFL holders, was struck to review procedures for
allowable cut calculations and inventory estimates
to ensure that techniques used in such
calculations were compatible with those used in
TSAs. The task force submitted its report to the
chief forester in December 1980.
Inventory
During 1980, Inventory Branch continued its
role of providing forest and range maps and
statistics required for the management of these
resources and for the determination of the rate of
timber harvest in the province.
During the field season, regional inventory
crews, assisted by the branch, conducted Timber
Supply Area (TSA) re-inventory surveys in the
following areas:

 forest companies reached an all-time high of
almost 75 million trees on over 63 000
hectares;
— site preparation to ensure regeneration by
natural seedfall or by planting increased to
over 121 000 hectares;
— the ministry's tree nursery program in 1980
utilized all available field and greenhouse
capacity, sowing for 110.5 million seedlings
and raising 16 million transplants. For the
first time private nurseries, both
commercial and licencee, participated in
the production of seedlings for reforestation
on Crown land. Private nurseries sowed 8.8
million container seedlings and produced
approximately 1.5 million transplanted
trees. Private nurseries involvement in the
production of planting stock will expand
significantly over the next few years;
— a total of 2 517 hectolitres of cones, yielding
1 559 kilograms of seed were processed
during 1980. Coastal seed orchards
produced enough seed to provide
approximately 600 000 seedlings.
Approval in principle has been received to
greatly expand the interior tree improvement and
seed orchard programs. Four interior spruce
orchards were established at Skimikin. Parent tree
selection activities continued and, to date, over
2 350 spruce parent trees have been selected
throughout the interior of the province. Other
ministry activities in silviculture in 1980 included:
— establishment of about 10 000 new survival
plots on 1980 plantations, and the
remeasurement of close to 17 000 plots from
previous years' plantations;
— examination of more than 220 000
hectares, by ministry and licencees staff, of
previously denuded forest land to determine
the extent of natural restocking;
— treatment of close to 4 500 hectares of forest
land for conifer release and juvenile spacing
of more than 21 000 hectares. A major
portion of these activities were carried out
under the Subsidiary Agreement for
Intensive Forest Management, in which the
federal government and the province share
the cost of the program. Such stand tending
