Timber Sales planned for Bulkley Valley area

In a June 11, 2008 Interior News advertisement, BC Timber Sales gave notice that it is proposing road and block development in Forest Development Units within their Bulkley 2007-2012 Forest Stewardship Plan and Nadina 2007-2012.

The Forest Stewardship Plan is already approved but BCTS is offering the public additional opportunities for review and comment.

Notification packages including maps are available at the Skeena Stikine Forest District and the Nadina Forest District offices.

In the Chisholm Lake area of the Morice Timber Supply Area, Timber Sale Licence A42557 CP RR is proposed for development consistent with the BCTS Nadina Forest Stewardship Plan. The review period is June 11 to July 10, 2008.

The following ten timber sale licences are in the Bulkley FSP. The review period is June 4 – July 4.

Reisseter: A82780
Tatlow Road: A82781
Deep Creek: A82775, A82776
Torkelson: A82783, A82785, A82786, A82787, A82788
Copper: A84227

BCTS provided a map of the Tatlow Road timber sale. Download the 1 MB PDF file: A82781_Overview.pdf
The area is expected to be logged winter of 2008-2009. The Google Earth image below shows the approximate location of the timber sale (brown area).

    To date, BCTS has not been able to sell the block since timber fallers are only paying $3.58/cubic meter for beetle wood, so why chase more expensive stumpage? The block has 19% beetle infestation at this time.
