Sierra Club Statement on BCTS A87125 (Elphinstone)

STATEMENT: COMPROMISED BC TIMBER SALES CUTBLOCK BIDDING THREATENS ELPHINSTONE PARK EXPANSION INITIATIVE

A recent Sierra Club BC analysis of remaining intact forests shows this area among those with the highest levels of ecological risk and very little old-growth left on the south coast, and is the most impacted dry-forest area as a result of logging and development, increasingly combined with climate impacts like extended drought conditions. The proposed cutblock is 60% Douglas Fir forest cover. Permitting logging between BC Parks land parcels further fragments the landscape beyond the point of no return.
