Logging is planned for areas that have been affected by the mountain pine beetle, including Coldstream Creek, Rainey Creek, Halfmoon Creek, Sundown Creek, Oetata Creek, One Island Lake, Tupper Creek, Bear Mountain and Steeprock Creek.
The plan has not been provided for viewing online. Instead, the public can view it at the B.C. Timber Sales’ Peace-Liard office at 9000 – 17th St. in Dawson Creek, B.C. during regular business hours until Dec. 20, 2013. To make an appointment to view the plan outside of those hours, contact Bob Phipps, RPF, planning forester, at 250 784-1241 or Carl Jahn, RPF, area forester, at 250 784-1218.
At the same time, public comments are still being accepted until November 26 on the allowable annual cut for timber in the Peace region, which will soon be set by the province’s Chief Forester.
