The annual allowable cut (AAC) for the Fort Nelson timber supply region will be increased by 1 million cubic metres.

It may be the only region of the province to actually see its AAC increase. The AAC for interior region timber supply areas is on the decline, due to the mountain pine beetle epidemic, and the coastal region is under unrelenting pressure to protect old growth forests from logging through parks and protected areas.
