BC Timber Sales
BCTS has planning responsibilities similar to holders of major forest tenures. BCTS must prepare and get approval for a forest stewardship plan that will guide timber harvesting development.
BCTS has 12 business areas across the province of which two have operations in the Bulkley Valley:
- The Skeena Business Area is based in Terrace and includes the Kispiox Timber Supply Area surrounding the Hazeltons.
BCTS Skeena has a Forest Stewardship Plan for Kispiox and Cranberry Timber Supply Areas – Skeena Stikine Forest District. The portion of the plan that is within the Bulkley Valley is referred to as the Suskwa watershed within the Kispiox Forest Development Unit.
- The Babine Business Area is based in Burns Lake and includes the Morice Timber Supply Area (Houston) and the Bulkley Timber Supply Area (Smithers).
