Forest Tenure Harvesting Authority Polygons

Forest Tenure Harvesting Authority Polygons This is a spatial layer that reflects operational activities for harvesting authorities. The harvesting authority is a legal area cleared by the Ministry of Forests and Range (that is, no other claims for the land exist) for harvesting purposes. This corresponds to the outlined areas on the Exhibit A maps. The Forest Tenures Section (FTS) is responsible for the creation and maintenance of digital Forest Atlas files for the province of British Columbia encompassing Forest and Range Act Tenures. It also supports the forest resources programs delivered by the MoFR. Each feature contains a Ministry of Forests and Range (MoFR) FEATURE_CLASS_SKEY (number) column that further defines the type of that feature. The layer contains harvesting authority boundaries for the following feature classes: Christmas Tree Permit (489), Forest Licence Cutting Permit (556), Licence to Cut (615), Timber Licence Cutting Permit (811), Timber Sale Licence Major Cutting Permit (818), Timber Sale Licence Minor (819), Tree Farm Licence Cutting Permit (834), WoodLot Licence Cutting Permit (864), Timber Sale Licence Minor Cutting Permit (917), and Community Forest Cutting Permit (2401). Each harvesting authority has a life cycle status code that is either PENDING - the harvesting authority has been submitted as a new harvesting authority or an amendment, but is not yet approved or rejected, ACTIVE - the harvesting authority is approved and activities may be taking place on the harvesting authority, or RETIRED - all activities have been completed for the harvesting authority 2024-03-01 Government of British Columbia foresttenuresbranch@gov.bc.ca Form DescriptorsNature and EnvironmentScience and TechnologycanadaFTAcut permitforestforest tenureharvestGovernment information Original metadata (https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca)HTML https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/forest-tenure-harvesting-authority-polygons BC Geographic Warehouse Custom DownloadHTML https://catalogue.data.gov.bc.ca/dataset/forest-tenure-harvesting-authority-polygons/resource/9a12228b-35c8-4620-953c-8e7c11126a8d Download KML Ground Overlay fileKML https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/kml/geo/layers/WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_HARVEST_AUTH_POLY_SVW_loader.kml Forest Tenure Harvesting Authority PolygonsWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_HARVEST_AUTH_POLY_SVW/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_HARVEST_AUTH_POLY_SVW&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain Forest Tenure Harvesting Authority PolygonsWMS https://openmaps.gov.bc.ca/geo/pub/WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_HARVEST_AUTH_POLY_SVW/ows?service=WMS&request=GetCapabilities&layers=pub:WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_HARVEST_AUTH_POLY_SVW&legend_format=image/png&feature_info_type=text/plain
