Kootenay Lake Timber Supply Area

The Kootenay Lake timber supply area (TSA) in southeastern British Columbia covers about 1.2 million hectares. It is bounded by Glacier National Park to the north, the United States boundary to the south, and the Purcell and Selkirk mountains to the east and west.

The major population centres in the TSA are Creston, Kaslo and Nelson. The TSA is administered by the Selkirk Natural Resource District and is within the Kootenay-Boundary Natural Resource Region.

The Kootenay Lake TSA’s current allowable annual cut (AAC) is 640,000 cubic metres per year. Generally, a new AAC is set at least once every 10 years.
