VICTORIA – An audit of Forest Licence A89984, held by Adams Lake, which is managed by the Adams Lake Indian Band, has found compliance with most requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act, according to a report released today. “The Board is pleased to see that Adams Lake is participating in the forestry sector and creating benefits for their community” said Kevin Kriese, Board Chair. The audit found one area for improvement, related to piling and burning logging debris too close to standing timber. On one site, a slash burn damaged some live trees. On two other sites, debris piles had not yet been burned, but were also too close to live timber. All other practices met the legal requirements.
