Part of the mandate of the Columbia Headwaters Community Forest Association (CHWCFA) is to harvest timber from within the area to be licensed. Before this can be done there is a need to know how much timber can be removed at a sustainable rate. CHWCFA turned to a company called Forsite from Salmon Arm who carries out these kinds of analysis and had experience in our area. Forsite was able to show up to 45,000 cubic meters of timber could be removed at a sustainable rate annually.
