Crown District 2 Forestry Operating Plan Amendment

Proponent:   Newfoundland and Labrador Forestry Service

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent has submitted a proposal to amend the Crown Five Year Operating Plan for Forest Management District 2, harvesting block CO234, for commercial harvesting.  This harvesting block is located near Lethbridge on the Bonavista Peninsula.   The amendment is required to provide a harvest area for a new commercial operator who has been allocated a 500 cubic metre annual permit.  The amendment will provide access to an additional 49 hectares of forested land and 3000 cubic metres of harvestable timber in an area adjacent to the operator’s commercial sawmill.  The District’s sustainable harvest level will not be exceeded as harvesting will be reduced elsewhere in the District.  Access to the area will be via existing forest access trails.  Harvesting is expected to be completed during the current Five Year Forest Management Plan for District 2.
