Allowable cut announcement provides stability: Interfor

It will remain 700,000 cubic metres a year for the next ten years.

Ric Slaco the VP and Chief Forester with Interfor says that figure gives them stability going forward although given the outlook for a surge in the lumber market they’d be happy to see some increases.

BC’s Chief Forester says maintaining the current allowable cut provides a balance between supporting supply and the potential need to harvest more if the mountain pine beetle infestation worsens in the Boundary.
