Haines Junction Wood Allocation Strategy Operational Policy and Procedures

First page of Haines Junction Allocation Strategy

This strategy directs the allocation of forest resources for commercial harvesting on public lands managed under the Strategic Forest Management Plan and Integrated Landscape Plan within the Champagne and Aishihik Traditional Territory. It does not apply to personal fuel wood opportunities for the public.

The Forest Management Branch, together with the Yukon Wood Products Association ,  is adopting this strategy to meet:

  • an increasing demand for timber resources;
  • the need for a performance-based, fair process; and,
  • the desire to avoid a bid/tender system of wood allocation.

The strategy is intended to be adaptable and flexible to accommodate future needs, and will be revised and updated as necessary. Forest Management Branch and the Yukon Wood Products Association have committed to reviewing the strategy on an annual basis to address operational issues.
