Haida Gwaii Timber Supply Area
The Haida Gwaii timber supply area (TSA), formerly known as the Queen Charlotte TSA, lies entirely within Haida Gwaii, a group of about 150 islands approximately 90 kilometres west of British Columbia’s north coast. Haida Gwaii communities include Masset, Old Masset, Port Clements, Skidegate, Queen Charlotte City and Sandspit.
The TSA covers roughly 308,000 hectares of land, and is administered by the Haida Gwaii Natural Resource District.
Effective October 27, 2020, the Haida Gwaii TSA’s current allowable annual cut (AAC) is 398,000 cubic metres.
This decision follows the Haida Gwaii Management Council (HGMC) AAC determination for the Haida Gwaii Management Area (HGMA) announced in May 2020.
The HGMC’s determination is a joint decision by the Haida Nation and British Columbia.
