Resource Works – 5 Forestry Facts – 2021

Old Growth Forest Practices on BC Coastal areas….some better reporting

Forestry in BC: Setting the Record Straight

Highlights:
– On Vancouver Island alone, 860,000 hectares is considered old forest (>250 years old), of which 520,000 hectares or 62% is protected.
– Old growth is not being harvested “down to the last tree”. Coastal forests (on Crown land) generally are projected to have a relatively stable annual allowable cut over the next 100 years at a sustainable rate of ~15 million cubic metres.
– There is no evidence that a “forest management crisis” exists once all relevant factors are examined.
– The Fairy Creek watershed is not “southern Vancouver Island’s last intact old-growth forest”, an oft-repeated claim despite the fact that at least 10 other nearby watersheds are also intact and feature old growth.
