Western Forest Products gets good audit

Forest Practices Board

An audit of Western Forest Products Inc.s forestry activities on TFL 39, Block 1, found compliance with B.C.s forestry legislation, according to a report released on Dec. 17.

We are pleased to see that Western Forest Products carried out good practices and met the requirements of the Forest and Range Practices Act and the Wildfire Act, said Al Gorley, board chair, in a news release. In particular, we note the companys efforts to maintain open communication with the public as well as address recreation resources and visual quality in the TFL.

Western harvested nearly half a million cubic metres of timber during the audit period, from June 2012 to June 2013.

The Forest Practices Board is B.C.s independent watchdog for sound forest and range practices, reporting its findings and recommendations directly to the public and government. The board audits forest and range practices on public lands and appropriateness of government enforcement. It can also make recommendations for improvement to practices and legislation.
