John Cuthbert and the WestLand Panel
Despite charges to the contrary, the B.C. Chief Forester says the B.C. allowable cut is right about where it should be.¬† He says the working forest is about 25 million hectares; that the growth rate is 3 cubic metres per ha. per year; which multiplies out to 75 million cubic metres and that is what the provincial cut has averaged for the last 10 years.¬† Cuthbert also says that unless the forest service is greatly expanded in size, more and more forest management will have to be done by the private sector.
