The data source for BC forestry tenures data is listed below. These dataset were downloaded in March 2013. Volume-based tenures are comprised of the following datasets: - Pulpwood Agreements - Timber Supply Agreements which intersect with current harvest polygons
Area -based tenures are comprised of the following datasets: - Woodlot licenses - Community Forest Agreements - Timber Licenses - Tree Farm licenses
Due to the inclusion of various types of forestry tenures, this is overlap between them.
Protected Areas and "No Logging Areas" lands were removed from the TSAs.
