Woodlot Licence Program


 

General Information:

The South Island Natural Resource District has 28 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. 

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.
