Forest Management District 22 Five-Year Operating Plan (2017-2021)

Proponent:  Forest Service, Dept. Fisheries, Forestry and Agrifoods

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent has submitted a proposal for a Five-Year Forest Management Plan for Forest Management District 22 (FMD 22).  FMD 22 extends through southwestern Labrador to the Quebec border.  FMD 22 is approximately eight million hectares and includes the towns of Churchill Falls, Wabush and Labrador City.  The plan describes timber harvesting operations, construction of access roads and silviculture activities. The proponent proposes to harvest approximately 39,000 cubic metres of wood and construct approximately nine kilometres of primary forest road that will maintain or expand the existing commercial forest industry and allow domestic home heating. Commercial harvesting will be carried out manually and with shortwood harvesters and forwarders.  Domestic harvesting will be done with chainsaws and extraction by snowmobile and all-terrain vehicles. The plan covers the period from January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2021.
