  1. Im sure this has been answered, but can the Northwest Bay Gate point of entry from the Highway be posted?
    Also - Are cutting chaps acceptable for safety gear when harvesting firewood or are pants now the only acceptable leg protection? Thank you.

  2. There is a large sign Island Timberlands sign at our Northwest Bay office off the highway in Nanoose. No additional signage is planned at this time.

    Chainsaw chaps or pants are acceptable for safety clothing so long as they fit and are in good condition.
