Over the past 20 years, community forestry in BC has been championed by the BCCFA and its dedicated members, creating a network of leaders with a vision for forestry that pushes community values to the forefront. The 2022 report is based on survey information collected from 33 community forests across the province, spanning 18 indicators that are used each year to account for the wide range of values and impacts of community forests.
