From time to time, BC Timber Sales (BCTS) sends Squamish Environment Society (SES) a request to review proposals for changes related to management of our forests. Changes can relate to areas protected as old growth forest or blocks of forest to be made available for harvest. BCTS wishes to determine whether there are any concerns and/or possible impacts to our interests within the proposed harvest areas.
These review requests have a time limit and we don’t have any dedicated resources for tasks like this, so we encourage anyone interested in conducting or helping conduct such reviews to temporarily act as a volunteer Technical Advisor to our Board of Directors.
We have a letter outlining the proposal. All proposed forest activities pertaining to the Operational Plan # 27, are available for viewing on the BCTS website. Of special interest with this request is reference to the Province’s old growth protection initiative.
If you have comments which could help the SES Board provide a response to BCTS, please send them to us by March 25.
