The Southern Interior Silviculture Committee has been in existence since the 1960s. Our purpose is to promote appropriate silviculture practices in BC by hosting two events each year – a winter workshop and a summer field tour – to provide a venue for discussion of forestry issues and topics.

We also post announcements and reports on this site, that may be of interest to our members.

SISCO does not endorse any political party or platform; we are non-partisan and our sole purpose is to promote dialogue about good silviculture and forest practices in the province of BC.
