Revelstoke allowable annual cut reduced by two per cent
Effective immediately, the new allowable annual cut for the Revelstoke timber supply area will be 225,000 cubic metres, chief forester Jim Snetsinger announced Friday.
The previous allowable annual cut, set in September 2005, was 230,000 cubic metres.
The chief forester’s determination is an independent professional judgment based on information ranging from technical forestry reports, First Nations and public input to the government’s social and economic goals.
The chief forester must determine how much wood can be harvested in each of the province’s 38 timber supply areas and 34 tree farm licences at least once every 10 years.
