Woodlot gets approval

The provincial government has tendered a new woodlot near Ashton Creek

The provincial government has tendered a new woodlot near Ashton Creek.

The Ministry of Forests is accepting bids from prospective operators looking to  manage the 1,189-hectare woodlot, which includes two separate blocks  and a total allowable annual cut of 4,250 cubic metres.

“This new woodlot will help keep jobs in the Okanagan and give local  communities a greater say in how local forest resources are managed,” said Greg Kyllo, Shuswap MLA.

The deadline for bids on the woodlot is Dec. 3.

Woodlots are small, area-based tenures that combine private land with Crown land.
