The Kingcome Economic Operability model was completed in March 2004 in order to determine the portion of the TSA that could be considered to be operable for strategic planning and timber supply analysis purposes. To accomplish that objective, several log price / profit margin scenarios were examined. Following discussion with the Licensees, a base case operability map was generated using the Median Log Price / -$10 Profit Margin was produced. This operability model is being recalibrated in anticipation of TSR3 for the Kingcome TSA. This new model run will include: changes and corrections to the forest inventory adjustments to site index second-growth timber values based on end use sort forecasts an updated road coverage based on the last Forest Development Plans and other information corrections to the Kingcome TSA boundary to include areas that were missed on the original economic operability assessment updates to log price information to capture changes since 2004 updated logging costs With these updated inputs incorporated, a new base case operability coverage has been generated. This is an interim report, and is being distributed as a draft for discussion only. Decisions (yet to be made) regarding the implementation and modelling of Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) may have a significant impact on the extent of the economically operable land base.
