Lil’wat Forestry Ventures LP has been harvesting timber from IR6, blocks IR6-2, IR6-3 & IR6-4 since March 27.
The wood is being felled and processed and hauling is planned to commence Monday April 9th and last approximately 2-3 weeks.
Approximately 60 logging truck loads will be travelling through Owl Ridge and 40 logging truck loads will be going down Xet’olacw Road.
These harvest blocks are second growth timber and have been reviewed by a professional forester to ensure the work is ecologically sustainable as well as by Lil’wat cultural technicians to ensure there no archeological concerns.
Harvesting on these blocks has been reviewed and approved by both Lil’wat Nation Chiefs and Council and the Land Management Board.
If you have any concerns please feel free to discuss them with Jordon Gabriel in the Lil’wat Business Group’s office or at 604-894-6115.
