Conservation of Imperiled Coastal Douglas-fir Ecosystem
In February 2010, the Forest Practices Board received a complaint from a resident of Nanoose Bay about forest practices in the Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystem (CDF). The complainant is concerned about these issues:
- Whether government is abiding by an earlier commitment not to issue new forest tenures in the CDF.
- That district lot (DL) 33, a 64-hectare parcel of Crown land near Nanoose Bay, was not selected for ecosystem protection.
- The apparent lack of public consultation about proposed logging on DL 33.
- Whether government is adequately protecting the CDF ecosystem.
