Cut allocation decision not yet made

There is still no word on how the annual allowable cut will be allocated on Haida Gwaii.The decision from the Chief Forester was expected at the end May, but will not be announced until consultation with the Haida Gwaii Management Council and the Haida are concluded, said Christine Fletcher of the Forest Analysis and Inventory Branch. “At this point, it’s hopefully in July,” she said.Ms Fletcher said that the Chief Forester’s decision can’t exceed the HGMC’s annual allowable cut of 929,000 cubic metres. That number was announced in April when the HGMC made its first-ever annual allowable cut decision. It remains higher than has actually been cut in recent years, because of poor market conditions. The Chief Forester will now allocate where the wood will be cut within the three areas being actively harvested.”We’re definitely hoping for it (the allocation) to be done this summer,” said Ms Fletcher, “we’re working on it.”
