VICTORIA, B.C. — There will be more wood to move for log haulers in northeastern B.C. thanks to an increase in the allowable annual cut for Tree Farm Licence 48.

B.C. deputy chief forester Ken Barker announced the harvest increase of 13 per cent.

“This is a robust timber supply,” says Baker. “In fact, the analysis indicates higher harvest levels are possible. However, potential future increases will depend on harvesting more deciduous stands.”

The increase will mean an extra 66,000 cubic metres of wood being harvested — that’s a total of more than 575,000 cubic metres of timber now coming from the area.
