Teal-Jones hopeful for work this summer

  • Mar. 10, 2006 5:00 p.m.

Teal Jones in Sandspit is hoping to get back to work by the summer, but it’s unclear exactly when that might happen.
“Right now we are just doing some work for BC Timber Sales”, Brad Tanner, operations engineer for Teal-Jones in Sandspit said, “we are kind of on hold. We haven’t worked with most of the crew since last July.”
Mr. Tanner said there’s more than one problem preventing the company from going back to work, including log prices and “issues with the forest service and the Haida, the way things are going there.”
He said logging approvals are “few and far between” but he hopes the company can get logging “again this summer, (I’m) not sure when.”
The company cut 100,000 cubic metres of timber last year (40-percent second growth, 60-percent old growth) and hopes to cut the same this year. It employed about 30 full-time people last year, with another 10 employed by contractors.
