Forestry

Join us for an afternoon in the field to explore how this natural resource industry is managed on Haida Gwaii. Haida Gwaii has a total area of 1,018,000 hectares with parks and reserves accounting for 229,000 hectares (22%); tree farm license (TFL) areas, 324,000 hectares (32%); and the remainder, 465,000 hectares (46%) as TSA. The timber supply area is primarily located on the east and west sides of Graham Island, with a smaller portion on northwest Moresby Island.

 

WHAT TO EXPECT

We will travel on logging roads from Daajing Giids/Queen Charlotte to different areas along the backroads to learn about the various ecosystems and shared governance of these forests by the Haida Nation and BC government.
