Our 32,000-acre Peace River property is located in northeastern British Columbia.

Project Summary:


British Columbia, Canada


Improved forest management, regenerative agriculture and afforestation

The land includes a mix of forest and agriculture. The forest stands consist mainly of aspen and spruce trees located along the forest fringe between agriculturally dominated land and boreal forest.

This region has undergone dramatic change over the last century. Since the 1950s, agricultural development in the area has expanded to nearly 2 million acres. In addition, the region has another 1.3 million acres of land that the government of British Columbia is prioritizing for agricultural expansion.

There has also been a significant expansion of the industrial footprint in the region from hydroelectric and oil and gas development in recent years.

Our Peace River property exists in a unique landscape with a balance of wilderness and agricultural land. Throughout the patchwork of grain farms and cattle pastures are large expanses of aspen parkland and boreal forest.

Endangered and globally important species such as woodland caribou, grizzly bear, cougar, lynx, wolverine, and wolves reside on our lands.

Moose, mule deer, white-tailed deer, and elk are also essential to the ecosystem and support the region’s predators, as well as local subsistence and recreational hunters.

Perimeter Forest acquired the property to contribute to sustainable forestry and agriculture in the region.

Peace River project sustainable forestry and agricultural practices

  • Improving the productivity of existing pasture and forage-producing lands

  • Restoring tree cover of pasture lands for silvopasture – integrating forage, forest, and grazing lands in a mutually beneficial manner

  • Converting marginal annual croplands to perennial forage production

By working with local regenerative ranchers, we can contribute to the health and resiliency of the local environment, biodiversity, and economy.

We also aim to join other local pioneers in sustainable agriculture by demonstrating that the productivity of the land can be amplified through forward-looking forestry and agricultural practices, and the Peace River region can be a source for sustainable agriculture, forestry, and other ecological goods and services with local and global positive impact.
