A Detailed Forest Management Plan (DFMP)
is a long-term (140-200 years) forest management plan for a Forest
Management Unit (FMU).
the implementation of a public involvement plan, resource management
goals (biological, economic, and social), objectives, and strategies
are identified and implemented through the selection of a Preferred
Forest Management Strategy (PFMS). The PFMS, which also includes
the completion of a Timber Supply Analysis (TSA) and a 20-year
Spatial Harvest Sequence (SHS), is the mechanism to achieve the
desired future forest.
The PFMS is implemented across the landscape through
the General Development Plan (GDP), Final Harvest Plan (FHP),
and regional-specific operating ground rules.
To ensure that the PFMS is being implemented on
the landscape as planned, an Annual Performance Report and 5-Year
Stewardship Report is completed to compare forecasted results
versus actual performance. This will ensure that the desired ecological,
economic, and social aspects of Sustainable Forest Management
(SFM) are being maintained or enhanced over the planning horizon.
