  • Mount Yeatman (north side) Grove

    Woodlot 2031 (Okisollo Resources) has mapped an area on the north side of Mount Yeatman where harvest is to be “avoided.” Presumably this is an area of primary forest but it has not been surveyed on the ground by the project as of mid-2021. The area is the bright green object in the southeast corner of the woodlot map below, which borders on Main Lake Provincial Park. Satellite imagery (see below) shows the area to be steep and unlikely to be a significant area of productive primary forest. Other areas of Woodlot 2031 have significant areas of productive primary forest. None of these have been “reserved” by the woodlot tenure holder.

  • The map below is TimberWests account of forest by age class on Quadra Island. It doesnt indicate all of the old forest that has been confirmed by the Discovery Islands Forest Conservation Project, but most of the areas shown in brown are areas of old forest (>250 years).
