Victoria-based NGO, Friends of Ecological Reserves, visited the area with ELF in early July. Further to this, BC Timber Sales has agreed to delay the selling of the block (TFL DK045) until their own Ministry of Forest Ecologist makes an assessment. There isn’t an Ecological Reserve in BC dedicated to the protection of the old-growth dependent Pacific Yew. ELF documented 340+ Yews in this one small forest, and are urging The Ministry of Forests to protect it. 340 Yews growing in an area of about 2 football fields in size, is extraordinary, and we cannot allow it be to indiscriminately logged.
