  • H'Kusam

    This forest just north of Sayward was one of the nine areas for which a 2-year logging deferral was ordered in September 2020 by the Horgan government. The deferral announcement described the area like this: "H'Kusam: 1050 ha. Pronounced kew-sum, this easily accessible area contains outstanding examples of culturally modified trees and intact stands of old growth cedar."

  • Legal Old Growth Management Areas on Vancouver Island

    This map will take a few moments to load. It allows you to determine whether an area of old growth is currently included in a legal OGMA established by the ministry of forests. Legal OGMAs are not "protected" in the sense that parks or ecological reserves are protected.

    Zoom into or out of the map using the + or - buttons. Pan around the map by clicking and dragging it to another location.
