Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes a timber harvesting amendment to six domestic cutting blocks for the Five-Year Operating Plan for Forest Management Planning Zone 8 (Districts 17 & 18) on the Northern Peninsula.

This amendment is proposed to open up significant areas of blow down for domestic harvesting. It is estimated that approximately 12,804 cubic metres of softwood and 1,280 cubic metres of hardwood would be harvested over the duration of this Five-Year Plan which ends on December 31, 2017.
