TecFor Resources Ltd. was retained by Teal Cedar Ltd. to provide a prescription for adding large woody debris (LWD) to Reaches M2 and M3 of MacIntyre Creek. The watershed is located in TFL 47 on the Queen Charlotte Islands. The Resource Management Plan developed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Ministry of Environment, and Ministry of Forests designated the Copper Watershed as a Priority Key and Target Watershed. The Restoration Plan for the Copper River Watershed, by Golder Associates Ltd., indicated that instream and riparian assessments were necessary to determine restoration needs. Based on findings determined during a hydrologic assessment, it was determined that Reaches M2 and M3 lacked LWD and existing instream LWD was old and decaying.
