Okanagan Timber Supply Area
The Okanagan Timber Supply Area (TSA) covers about 2.25 million hectares of the Thompson-Okanagan Natural Resource Region in south-central British Columbia.
The TSA stretches from the Seymour River and Shuswap Lake in the north to the Canada-United States border in the south, and from the Monashee Mountains in the east to the Okanagan Mountains in the west. It includes the communities of Penticton, Vernon, Kelowna and Salmon Arm.
The TSA is administered by the Okanagan Shuswap Natural Resource District office in Vernon, with field offices in Penticton and Salmon Arm.
Effective January 27, 2022 the Okanagan TSA allowable annual cut (AAC) will be 2,462,800 m3.
Generally, a new AAC is set at least once every 10 years.
