Logging on District Lot 33 within the Coastal Douglas-Fir Ecosystem
In May 2010, the Forest Practices Board received a complaint from a resident of Nanoose Bay about planned logging on District Lot (DL) 33. DL 33 is a 64-hectare parcel of Crown land near Nanoose Bay containing mature forest and some older veteran trees within the Coastal Douglas-fir ecosystem. The complainant is concerned about the integrity of the ecosystem and wants DL 33 to be protected from logging. Should logging proceed, the complainant wants to know how wetlands, rare species, plant communities, fish streams, and groundwater values on DL 33 will be protected.
