This is a spatial layer that reflects operational activities for cutblocks contained within harvesting authorities. 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 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 cutblock boundaries for the following feature classes: Forest Licence Cut Block (555), Licence to Cut Cut Block (616), Timber Licence Cut Block (810), Timber Sale Licence Major Cut Block (817), Timber Sale Licence Minor CB Non Replaceable (820), Tree Farm Licence Cut Block (833), Wood Lot Licence Cut Block (863), Community Forest Cut Block (2402), and Timber Sale Licence Minor CB Replaceable (2417). Each cut block has a life cycle status that is either PENDING - the cut block has been submitted as a new cut block or an amendment, but is not yet approved or rejected, ACTIVE - the cut block is approved and activities may be taking place on the cut block, or RETIRED - all activities, with respect to the harvesting authority, have been completed for the cut block

Object Description

Object Name: WHSE_FOREST_TENURE.FTEN_CUT_BLOCK_POLY_SVW

Short Name: FTN_C_B_PL
Comments: Information about harvesting that takes place on a cut block.

Column Name Short Name Data Type Data Precision Comments
CUT_BLOCK_FOREST_FILE_ID CTBLCKFRST VARCHAR2 10 File identification assigned to Provincial Forest Use files. Assigned file number. Usually the Licence, Tenure or Private Mark number. This Forest File is specific to the Cut Block and in the case that this Cut Block is part of a CP, the Forest File of the CP may be different.
TIMBER_MARK TIMBER_MRK VARCHAR2 10 Unique identifying set of characters to be stamped or marked on the end of each log to associate the log with the specific authority to harvest and move timber.
CUT_BLOCK_ID CUT_BLK_ID VARCHAR2 10 Identifier for a cut block of a harvesting tenure (within a cutting permit for tenures with cp's).
FEATURE_CLASS_SKEY FEAT_CLASS NUMBER 10 Unique identifier for a spatial feature class.
BLOCK_STATUS_CODE BLK_ST_CD VARCHAR2 3 The before status image of the Cut Block. The status indicates the point the Cut Block is at in it's lifecycle. Examples are: PP - Planning, HA - Harvesting, LC - Logging Complete, and S - Silviculture.
BLOCK_STATUS_DATE BLK_ST_DT DATE 7 The date on which the current cut block status was set.
CUT_BLOCK_DESCRIPTION CB_DESC VARCHAR2 120 Description of the code value
CUT_BLOCK_SKEY CB_SKEY NUMBER 10 The unique identifer for a cut block.
CUT_REGULATION_CODE CUT_REG_CD VARCHAR2 3 Identifies the type of regulation applicable to a given cut block. Valid values include "Bark Beetle Regulation", and "Small Scale Salvage".
REFOREST_DECLARE_TYPE_CODE REFORST_CD VARCHAR2 3 Identifies the reforestation declaration type. E.g. Coniferous, Deciduos, Mix.
FEATURE_AREA FEAT_AREA NUMBER 15 Spatial feature area in square metres. This value is calculated.
FEATURE_PERIMETER FEAT_PERIM NUMBER 12 Spatial perimeter length in metres. This value is calculated.
PLANNED_HARVEST_DATE PLN_HRV_DT DATE 7 The date on which the harvest was planned.
PLANNED_GROSS_BLOCK_AREA PLN_GRS_AR NUMBER 11 Estimated initial gross area of the cut block, in hectares, from the PHSP.
PLANNED_NET_BLOCK_AREA PLN_NET_AR NUMBER 11 Estimated planned gross area of the cut block, in hectares, from the PHSP.
OPENING_ID OPENING_ID NUMBER 10 System generated value uniquely identifying the opening.
DISTURBANCE_START_DATE DSTRBNCSTR DATE 7 Actual date that harvesting started on the block.
DISTURBANCE_END_DATE DSTRBNCNDD DATE 7 For areas being Harvested, this date is associated with the actual or estimated completion of Harvesting. This date s/b entered as part of the regular logging inspection, and updated as required. The actual date will be when the status moves to S - Silv.
CLIENT_NUMBER CLIENT_NUM VARCHAR2 8 Sequentially assigned number to identify a ministry client.
CLIENT_LOCATION_CODE CL_LOC_CD VARCHAR2 2 Retrofitted from column CLIENT_LOCN_CODE of table FOR_CLIENT_LINK
CLIENT_NAME CLIENT_NM VARCHAR2 60 The name of the Ministry Client - Company or Individual. Entered as: the full corporate name if a Corporation; the full registered name if a Partnership; the legal name if an Individual.
