A considerable amount of basic forest information for layperson consumption is available through short (<6 minute) videos. Unfortunately, not all aspects of forests, forest management, land use, etc. are available in this mode but the gaps can be partially filled through information on various websites.
Those not familiar with the sector will find it difficult and time consuming to search through the websites to get the necessary information to become informed about a subject. An easily accessible database of Forest sector video-description links has been compiled to provide basic information on BC forestry and wood products. In Phase 2, we will be updating this database as more videos and website links are identified and embarking on an awareness initiative to inform communities and interested parties regarding this resource.
