The Burns Lake Community Forest (BL Comfor) has submitted its Annual Allowable Cut (AAC) request to the provincial government. Its request is for 1.8 million cubic metres over a 10-year period, to be effective in May of 2020, according to its AAC Proposal and Rationale published in early November. That amount comprises 1,267,510 cu m of green volume (with a small amount of deciduous) and 561,355 cu m of dead volume. “We’re basically saying there is still dead out there but we don’t know the shelf life of it. So we’re asking for a sustainable green harvest,” as Frank Varga, General Manager of BL Comfor told Lakes District News. …The Chinook Community Forest is preparing its AAC determination but will submit its request in late 2020, said Ken Nielsen, General Manager of Chinook Comfor. It expects to receive an answer from the government by the spring of 2021.
