Logging will be good for Old Massett, says administrator

  • Feb. 25, 2005 11:00 a.m.

Logging in the Masset area will give Old Massett a chance to participate in a complete harvest process from planning to sale, said Dave Jackson, Old Massett Village Council’s new interim adminisrator.
“This is a great opportunity for the community members to understand the specifics of a harvest process,” he said. With the support of the Council of the Haida Nation, the village will partner with Husby Forest Products Ltd to harvest 95,000 cubic meters of timber from 17 cut blocks at the north end of the islands.
At present, engineers are assessing the blocks and the partners are going through the approval process with the Ministry of Forests. Not all of the cut blocks will be logged.
“Husby is following typical practices of examining a broad area and working with engineers, foresters and community members to select the most optimal locations for a cut,” said Mr. Jackson. “Band members and the public will have an opportunity to provide input and have discussion before the final location of the cut is determined.”
Anyone with comments about the proposed harvest can submit them to Husby Forest Products, 6425 River Road, Delta BC V4K 5B9.
