Northern Rockies Regional Municipality

Forestry Rejuvenation Project

 

Aspen Quality Study

In partnership with FPInnovations, and with the generous funding of the Province of BC through the Rural Dividend Program and Northern Development Initiative Trust's Marketing Initiatives Program, the NRRM recently completed the "Northern Rockies Aspen/Hardwood Resources in Northeast BC Investor's Package Overview Report".  Direct-distributed to leaders in the forest manufacturing sector, and available to anyone wanting to learn more about the enviable aspen resource located in the Fort Nelson Forest District and the Northern Rockies Regional Municipality, read more here.

 

 The Roadmap: Forestry Rejuvenation

“The NRRM: a natural resources based regional municipality focused on leadership, innovation and families.”

 The NRRM's healthy and diverse forests remain a key long-term asset for our local economy. While large-scale operations have been suspended since 2008, our high quality green timber basket has been largely unaffected by the pine beetle infestation that has impacted a large part of BC (18.3 million hectares). 

The Annual Allowable Cut (AAC) of 1.6 million cubic metres, combined with an accumulated 16 million cubic metres of undercut volume, is a significant resource on which new operations could draw. This first class resource is ready to support long term sustainable development. 

 

It's time for BC’s forest sector to change. The NRRM believes that partnerships and local involvement are the future of forestry.
