What is the Practice of Professional Forestry?
The practice of professional forestry is the work, direction, and services that guide the responsible use and sustainability of forests, forest lands, forests resource, and forest ecosystems. These activities are further broken into subset areas known as Practice Areas. Practice Areas are unique and evolving fields that require those performing the activities to have the appropriate education, knowledge, and experience.
Anyone practising forestry is required by provincial law to be registered with the Association of British Columbia Forest Professionals, which establishes and regulates the criteria for entry to the profession. Inquiries and complaints about potential infringement of the practice of professional forestry should be directed to the ABCFP’s registrar and director of act compliance.
