Audit of Forest Planning and Practices: Ka-Bar Resources Ltd. – FLTCs A83972, A83973, A85053, A88604, A88605, A88606, A88607, A88608, A88609 & A88610
This audit examined the activities of Ka-Bar Resources Limited (Ka-Bar) on 10 cutblocks located northeast of Princeton, near the community of Bankeir in the Cascades District, from September 1, 2012, to September 16, 2013.
In 2006, government created a new category of forest licence to enable harvesting of trees to protect communities from wildfire. Five of Ka-Bar’s forestry licences to cut were issued for that purpose—to protect local residents from wildfire. This is the first time the Board has audited this type of tenure.
