Crown District 19 Five Year Operating Plan (2013-2017) Amendment

Proponent:  Forestry and Agrifoods Agency

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent is proposing an amendment to the 2013-2017 Five Year Operating Plan in District 19, near Lake Melville, Labrador. The amendment area is a 2500-hectare domestic cutting block that will open significant areas of burnt timber from a forest fire in 2013 for domestic harvesting.  The area included in this amendment is accessible by the Trans-Labrador Highway and will provide residents of Upper Lake Melville with easy access to a supply of fuelwood and sawlogs. Most of the harvesting and extraction will take place by snowmobile during the winter months.  There is approximately 125,000 cubic metres of burnt softwood expected to be harvested in these areas over the duration of the plan.
