Wednesday, March 2, 2016 @ 3:49 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The Lheidli T’enneh now have a woodlot licence.

The Province  has issued a 25 year  woodlot licence to the Lheidli T’enneh,  allowing  the harvesting of 25 thousand cubic metres of timber  annually from  two  areas within  the First Nation’s traditional territory. The agreement covers two parcels of Crown land.  One near Tabor Mountain, the other  near the Sugar Bowl-Grizzly Den Provincial Park.  The two parcels have a combined total size of 7,197 hectares.

Lheidli T’enneh Chief, Dominic Frederick welcomed the awarding of the woodlot licence ” This new licence will contribute to the Band’s overall forestry program which provides significant benefits to the Lheidli T’enneh community.”

This is the fourth First Nations woodland licence issued since the Province started the program in 2011.


way to go.

Who will actually log this woodlot.??? Do the Lheidli T’enneh have the resources to do the logging, or will it be contracted out to one of the local forest companies like Canfor, West Fraser, or some other??

Good to see a first nations group wanting to make money themselves. Should be an example to the other first nations that just keep complaining on the expense of tax payers money.
