Allowable annual cut level to remain same for Tree Farm Licence 56
Effective immediately, the allowable annual cut (AAC) level for the Tree Farm Licence (TFL) 56 north of Revelstoke will remain at the level set in September 2010.
Shane Berg, B.C.’s deputy chief forester, has kept the AAC for the TFL at 90,000 cubic metres. This decision aims to maintain stability in harvesting, balanced with First Nations’ and wildlife concerns, such as caribou habitat.
Consultation with First Nations and a public review process for the AAC determination and management plan were initiated in May 2019. Fourteen First Nations are associated with the Secwepemc, Ktunaxa or Okanagan First Nations, whose territories overlap with the administrative boundary of TFL 56.
TFL 56 is held by the Revelstoke Community Forest Corporation. The total area of the TFL is 119,353 hectares, of which 34% (23,233 hectares) is available and suitable for timber harvesting.
The TFL is located in the southern interior, adjacent to the Lake Revelstoke Reservoir, approximately 40 kilometres north of the community of Revelstoke and within the border of the Revelstoke Timber Supply Area (TSA).
The chief forester’s AAC determination is an independent, professional judgment, based on information ranging from technical forestry reports, First Nations’ and public input to the government’s social and economic goals.
Under the Forest Act, the chief forester must determine the AAC in each of the province’s 37 TSAs and 34 TFLs at least once every 10 years.
