TFL 19 covers 190,000 hectares on the west side of Vancouver Island in the vicinity of Nootka Sound. Now in its fifth decade of operation, WFP and predecessor companies have responsibly managed the licence for its long-term sustainability. The TFL currently provides direct employment for Gold River, Tahsis and Zeballos residents and is an important recreational and environmental resource in the Nootka Sound Region.
The Management Plan (MP) is written to meet the requirements of the Tree Farm Licence Management Plan Regulation (B.C. Reg. 280/2009): it provides a general description of the TFL, a brief history of the TFL, a list of publicly available planning documents that guide WFPs operations on the TFL and a timber supply analysis for the TFL. The timber supply analysis provides information to assist the Chief Forester of BC in determining the allowable annual cut for TFL 19.
Effective August 10, 2010 the AAC for TFL 19 was determined to be 730,000 m3/year. This AAC remains in effect until the next determination which will occur no later than August 10, 2020.
Management Plan #10 was approved on March 8, 2011 and is effective until it is replaced by a new Management Plan, which may occur up to 10 years after the date of the last AAC determination.
