Fire Closure - Weekend of Sept 28-30

All gated and un-gated Island Timberlands properties are considered closed for recreation this upcoming weekend.  This is the result of high to extreme forest fire hazard across the majority of our properties on Vancouver Island and the Sunshine Coast.

We hope that recreationalists will respect this request and wait patiently with us until conditions change.

Public Firewood Opportunities for Fall

Personal cut firewood opportunities will commence this fall once the weather cools and we receive sufficient precipitation to allow for safe cutting.

The first area for cutting planned for opening will be on our private timberlands along White Rapids Road where it joins with Extension Road. 

Keep checking back to this blog for the first weekend opening for public firewood.
