     Timber Supply Review
 
     
  The Pacific Timber Supply Area (TSA) was established on July 15, 2009, and is comprised of 30 blocks located on Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast, the Mainland Coast and the Douglas Channel.  The TSA was formed by an amalgamation of various tree farm license (TFL) areas taken back by the Province, to support BC Timber Sales (BCTS) and the establishment of the market pricing system (MPS), through the Forestry Revitalization Act (Bill 28, 2003). 

BCTS will be working, in partnership with other Pacific TSA tenure holders, to complete a timber supply review (TSR)  on the Pacific TSA.  The TSR is anticipated to start in July 2014 with the aim of having the Chief Forester allowable annual cut (AAC) determination by December 2015.  The AAC is the maximum volume of timber (m3) that the Chief Forester determines is reasonable to harvest from a TSA, and is generally completed once every 10 years.  Each of the blocks making up the Pacific TSA have been part of a TFL TSR process prior to the takeback, however, this will be the first TSR on the Pacific TSA as a whole.
