AAC in Williams Lake Significantly Reduced

250 News

Williams Lake, B.C. – The new allowable annual cut for the Williams Lake Timber Supply Area has been reduced by 2.77 million cubic meters. The cut had been 5.77 million cubic meters since 2007 to allow the forestry sector to get the most economic value from trees ravaged by the Mountain Pine Beetle . …Not only is the impact of the Mountain Pine Beetle reflected in the new cut limit, the recent Supreme Court ruling on the Tsilhqot’in title area is also taken into account. That ruling removed 141,769 hectares of land from the timber harvesting land base so it can no longer be considered provincial Crown land.
