Hi David,

I have added a number of files to the ftp site:

http://www.for.gov.bc.ca/ftp/RCO/external/outgoing/CFN_Midcoast/

 

SchDSummary.xls  - is the summary of the land base required to meet the Schedule D for the Heiltsuk and Wuikinuxv First Nations. I have taken the allocations for each nation which, you provided in your email,  and determined the area need to support the lump-sum volume over 5 years and the other annual commitments over 5, 10, 15 and 20 years. I also determined the percentage cedar (based on mature volume) for each economic sub-zone.

tsa19_adj_summaries.xls is a volume and area summary similar to the one posted before. However, in this case I have adjusted the amount of available old growth to account for the old-seral retention requirements.  These requirements are summarized in the first sheet.  The information I used to do this was taken from the TSR3 data set.   We should keep in mind that the old seral adjustment was aspatial and assumed that retention would be distributed uniformly but in reality it will be grouped in some watersheds but not in others. So this is a general uncertainty about the adjustment.

I also added map plot files which illustrate where the constrained old growth is located. These under the //plots sub directory
