Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes an amendment to the Five Year Operating Plan for Forest Management Zone 5 (District 12) south of Victoria River in central Newfoundland. The area is located approximately 22 kilometres south of the Town of Millertown. The amendment covers an area of 5,430 hectares and includes 25 kilometres of new primary forest access road and upgrades to 17 kilometres of existing access road that will provide access to 150,000 cubic metres of commercial softwood fibre. The amendment is proposed to allow commercial operators access to large diameter timber to match current market demands based on seasonal timing.
