Fort St. John Timber Supply Area
The Fort St. John timber supply area (TSA) covers about 4.6 million hectares in northeastern British Columbia. It includes the communities of Fort St. John, Trutch, Pink Mountain and Taylor and is administered by the Peace Natural Resource District.
The Fort St. John TSA’s current allowable annual cut (AAC) is 2,115,000 cubic metres, effective March 1, 2003. The chief forester issued an AAC determination postponement order for the TSA on December 5, 2007. Generally, a new AAC is set at least once every 10 years.
Feedback is welcome on any issues related to the timber supply review for the Fort St. John TSA. Public input is vital to the timber supply review process.
