Forest and Range

Posted by

Once the treaty is signed, NStQ will own and manage all forest resources and range resources on NStQ Title Lands. These are all lands within our territory that are not crown land, privately-owned land within a tree farm licence or woodlot licence issued under the Forest Act, or private-managed forest land.

NStQ may make laws about forest resources and practices, and range practices on NStQ Title Lands. Forest standards created by an NStQ law will have the same or even less impact to the environment than provincial laws.

Provincial laws for timber marking and scaling will still apply to timber harvested on and transported off the Title Lands. Logs from the Title Lands may be exported and do not have to be manufactured in BC.
