Canfor's Chetwynd forestry operation passes audit

Canfor harvested approximately 836,000 cubic metres of timber during the audit period, focused on salvaging lodgepole pine trees attacked by the mountain pine beetle.

In its report, the board said it is pleased with Canfor's results.
"We are pleased to see that Canfor is following the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act" said board chair Al Gorley. "Their activities were also consistent with the Dawson Creek Land and Resource Management Plan."
However, the board expressed concern about the increase in other resource extraction activities in the area, and although it admits that it is out of Canfor's control, it urges the corporation to remain aware of those activities to manage their licence properly.
This is the second time that licence has been audited.
