Ainsworth Lumber has signed an agreement with the British Columbia government to salvage up to 10.5 million cubic metres of mountain pine beetle-attacked timber for oriented strand board production.
The non-replaceable forest license allows annual harvesting of 700,000 cubic metres from the Quesnel timber supply area, for a total of 15 years. According to terms of this agreement, harvesting cannot get under way before substantial progress has been made on the completion of either a new or expanded OSB facility.
Ainsworth is looking to construct a state-of-the-art OSB manufacturing facility in the Quesnel-Prince George region of B.C.’s central interior.
A definitive area, or construction schedule have yet to be decided.
