The Dunster Community Forest Society has been working on developing their timber supply analysis of inventory. General Manager Ray Thiessen says this will allow long term strategic planning to occur by the winter season. The group is also planning out activities for next winter. “Once these plans are complete, we will dive into making more specific plans and arrangements in order for these activities to be performed successfully,” said Thiessen. In terms of active logging in the coming months, the area above Shere Lake will be the site of some tree harvesting. The DCFS is also investing time and money into the newly-established BRKH Custom Woodwork located in McBride. Grant money has allowed upgrades to the original shop as well as internal facelifts on the two kilns and connecting track.
