Twenty-year plan

In the past, the amount of harvesting conducted in the Phillips Arm area has been considerably higher than the contribution of this area to the timber harvesting land base. In response to district staff concerns, Interfor has planned to shift much of the harvesting in the TFL to Knight Inlet. Over the term of the current 20-year plan, covering the years 1995 to 2014, 85 percent of the harvest is planned to occur in Knight Inlet. The analysis suggests that 85 percent of the total harvest can be supported by the timber supply in Knight Inlet for the next 20 years. However, there are concerns about the operational feasibility of this considerable increase in harvesting in the Knight Inlet area which must be resolved before the 20-year plan can be approved. This issue should be monitored in the period leading up to the next determination.
