PLEASE NOTE: ACTIVE FOREST OPERATIONS IN NELSON
Svoboda Harvest Spring 2023
*Please direct all inquiries to Anderson Creek Timber*
NELSON, BC – Starting April 12th, Anderson Creek Timber Co. Ltd has been completing timber harvesting operations on their Svoboda Road property, one of the last phases of a three-way partnership with BC Parks and a group of Svoboda Road residents previously reported on in 2019.
Previous collaborations between these partners have allowed BC Parks to build access roads, harvest timber, and undertake wildfire fuel reduction work in West Arm Provincial Park. This work was completed in 2019, 2020 and 2021. Anderson Creek Timber is now undertaking its portion of the project.
Forest operations started April 12th and will run until June 15, 2023. Log hauling will take place from 6:00AM – 4:00PM on weekdays between May 15th and June 15th. Log hauling will take place down Svoboda Road and Elwyn Street onto Nelson Ave (Highway 3A) in the City Corporation of Nelson.
The cycling trail Middle Earth which runs through the private property remains closed until at least July 1st, 2023, from the Svoboda/Middle Earth connector and down. Cyclists and hikers should refrain from accessing this trail during operations, including weekend periods.
