  • Q136A Back Bog Forest

    This approximately 8-hectare area of primary forest lies just northeast of Back Bog, which feeds into Louma Lake beside the Granite Bay Road south of Granite Bay. The area of old forest overlaps the area of a cutblock proposed by TimberWest in April 2024. Residents adjacent to the area have requested that TimberWest not log the proposed cutblock. Logging the area of old forest would be contrary to the strategy outlined by the Vancouver Island Summary Land Use Plan for conserving old forest and concentrations of old trees in Special Management Zone 19 for the purpose of conserving biodiversity.

  • 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).
