Forest Stewardship Plan

Forest Stewardship Background

The following steps were taken to secure a Community Forest for Logan Lake. 

Work began on making Logan Lake a Fire Safe Community after the wildfires of 2003.

Televised celebrations of success through news programs drew the attention of the Minister of Forests in 2004.

The Community Forest was included as an outcome in Logan Lake's Vision 2010 planning process in 2004.

The Minister of Forests offered to consider an application for a Probationary Community Forest Agreement on February 22, 2005.

In 2005 and 2006, community consultation and preparation of the CF application were assisted through Western Diversification.

The Community Forest application was submitted in September of 2006, and revised June of 2007.  The application included a Management Plan and a Business Plan.

A formal offer to enter into a Probationary Community Forest Agreement was received from the Minster of Forests on November 19, 2007.

The Community Forest Area awarded is approximately 17,000 hectares (42,000 acres) in the vicinity of the District of Logan Lake.

In 2008, a one year contract was set to allow the harvest of up to 20,000 cubic metres by Aspen Planers, with reforestation and other obligations being undertaken by Aspen.

A Log Sourcing and Value Added Marketing Strategy is underway, to integrate long term harvest and silviculture strategies to encourage local education and manufacturing potential.

A partnership with the Logan Lake Secondary School will enable the successful integration of a small scale sawmill into the community.

Financial assistance has included Community Futures ($28,000) for the application and timber supply review, Western Economic Diversification ($37,000) for the Log Sourcing and Value Added Marketing study, a partnership with Logan Lake Secondary ($36,000) for a small sawmill purchase and training package, and transfer of Economic Diversification Funds ($100,000) from the District of Logan Lake for start up costs. The value of the licence will be approximately $500,000 over the 5 year period, for a total of $701,000 of accrued benefit to the community.

Guaranteed wood supply over time will enable the attraction of new value added wood manufacturing capadistrict, bring additional jobs and stability to Logan Lake.

Integration of trail management and range considerations will enable the broadest possible client base and leverage future tourism and local economic development opportunities.

A Timber Supply Review has completed. Results indicate the wisdom of increasing the short term harvest to rehabilitate Mountain Pine Beetle affected stands. The annual harvest could increase to 100,000 m3 per year with no significant effect on the long term productivity.

The Ministry of Forests and Range has now offered to increase the term of the license to a 25 year renewable tenure, making long term investments feasible.
