Expansion Meeting July 21, 2020

Community Forest Directors Rod Graham and Ian Macdonald had their third meeting of the year with Quesnel Natural Resource District officials to discuss the process for expanding Wells-Barkerville Community Forest. 

The officials confirmed the community forest could be invited to apply for an expansion. The community forest currently has an allowable annual cut of 5,000 cubic meters and the officials said this could be more than doubled. They said they first must decide if the allowable cut for the land of the existing community forest could be increased before deciding how much additional land could be allocated.
