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.
