Teal Jones plans logging above Queen Charlotte

  • Feb. 11, 2005 5:00 a.m.

Teal Jones Group is taking the first step to prepare for logging just above Queen Charlotte and west of Skidegate.
The Sandspit logging company has three timber licenses there (see the Observer Thursday for a map), and wants to do some logging in the area, said operations forester Dale Morgan. He also said it’s too early to say exactly where the logging would take place, or how much timber would be removed.
Before any logging can begin, the company must get approval for its plan, said Mr. Morgan, and the first step in that process is to do a hydrological assessment and consult with the community.
Teal Jones has hired hydrologist Michael Milne to do an assessment of the current condition of the watershed and deliver a report by mid-March or early April. After the report is completed, the company will create a committee with representatives from Department of Fisheries, Ministry of Forests, Ministry of Water, Land and Air Protection, an Environmental Health Officer and a member of the Queen Charlotte/Skidegate Landing Management Committee.
The committee will review the report and bring forward issues, said Mr. Morgan. Their input will provide guidance to the company and Ministry of Forests.
