Industry will be digesting and analyzing The Special Committee on Timber Supply’s report with interest today.   The 70-page report, entitled Growing Fibre, Growing Value, was presented at 10:00 this morning and is available here.  The complexities regarding Burns Lake will no doubt be a focal point.  A complete summary of the recommendations starts on page 45 under the following sub-headings:

  1. Preserving the Integrity of British Columbia’s Sustainable Forest Management System
  2. Land Base Issues
  3. Forest Practices Considerations
  4. Other AAC-related Issues
  5. Forest Tenure Issues and Interests
  6. Burns Lake

Committee Chair John Rustad said this morning“We have no power to enforce any of the recommendations, only make public suggestions based on our research and province-wide input.”
