2000 to 2005 Forest Development Plan for W1832

The first proposed Forest Development Plan for W1832 was released for public review and comment on April 29, 2002. The Plan was revised to address comments received, and approved by the Ministry of Forests on September 28, 2002.

The Forest Development Plan shows the location of proposed logging and road access development for the first five years of activities in W1832. (Note that the five year period started on January 1, 2000.) The FDP proposes:

  • 27.5 hectares of partial cutting timber harvesting,
  • 3.9 km of access road upgrading, and
  • 300 meters of new road construction
within the Winlaw Creek and Dumont Creek watersheds.

Proposed harvesting is shown in bright yellow in the image below. The proposed road upgrading is shown in orange, and runs along the boundary of the woodlot.

Perspecive view of proposed developments.

The Forest Development Plan also includes information on the nature of and protection of other resource values in the area affected by the proposed developments. The proposed management approaches to water supplies and watersheds, riparian ecosystems, wildlife and biological diversity, and visual management are explained.

The FDP explains the location and type of timber harvesting proposed, and the location and type of access development. The proposed Silica Mine Road upgrade is discussed and described.

The approved 2000 to 2005 Forest Development Plan for W1832 is available for download in Acrobat 4.0 format below. The FDP can be accessed as a single large file, or as a set of smaller "section" files. The FDP maps and Appendixes are also posted on this site.
