Kootenay Lake Timber Supply Area

Last updated on August 10, 2023

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.

In 2016, following a Community Forest Agreement (CFA), the TSA's allowable annual cut (AAC) is 634,861 cubic metres per year.

When a CFA is issued, the TSA's AAC is adjusted as per the  Allowable Annual Cut Administration Regulation.
