Woodlot Licence Program


 

Notice:

Take notice that a replacement offer for W1464 has been made to Dale and Norene Wilson.  This woodlot includes 402 hectares of Crown and Private Land and associated timber located in the vicinity of Qualicum Bay.  The intended replacement licence is for a twenty-year term.

General Information:

The South Island Forest District has twenty five Woodlot Licences spread through the district.  The first woodlots were awarded in the 1950’s as farm woodlots and more recent awards occurred in the 1980’s and through present day. 

Although no woodlot licences are currently available in the South Island Forest District - other woodlot opportunities around the province can be viewed at http://www23.for.gov.bc.ca/notices/init.do

 Many of the licenses are located in urban interface areas of the East Coast of Vancouver Island and provide many local people with forest recreation opportunities.  Licensee face a spectrum of resource management issues that include the protection of biodiversity values in East Coast Douglas-fir ecosystems, protection of scenic values and in one case a management regime consistent with the recommendations of the Clayoquot Sound Scientific Panel. 

There are 6,821 hectares of Crown Land and 1,701 hectares of private land in the woodlot licence program.  The combined Allowable Annual Cut (AAC) for the private and crown land in woodlot licences in the district is 26,036 m3/year.
