Abstract: In this essay we will examine the current tenure system of BC and if it is serving the objectives it was created to uphold for the people of BC. There have been new needs arising out of the landscape of BC since the 1980’s in which timber extraction may not take precedence. Does the current tenure system of BC adequately meet these needs, or must the system change once again to accommodate these objectives? We will answer this question by looking at why the tenure system needs reforming, and then at a few alternatives with emphasis on smaller more community based management which can be brought about by decentralizing control of our forested land base.
