Wildfires burned 2.8 million hectares in B.C.
This summer’s wildfires have raised concerns with local government.
The Regional District of Bulkley Nechako (RDBN) are concerned how the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is going to make discretionary decisions for the apportionment of the allowable annual cut (AAC) that was affected by wildfires.
“The total number of hectares burned in B.C. so far this season is estimated at just over 2.8 million hectares,” said RDBN Chair Mark Parker.
“The timber lost is an important number that needs to be determined, which is why the RDBN has asked the Province to complete an inventory,” he said.
