A representative from Ma-Mook Natural Resources Ltd., the forestry corporation that owns the Tree Farm Licence for area 54 and 57 in Clayoquot Sound, said they are coming to terms with the Sept. 11 announcement from the Province about deferring old growth harvesting in their areas.

Ma-mook is a privately held company and a partnership of the Ahousaht, Hesquiaht, Tla-o-qui-aht, Toquaht and Ucluelet First Nations.

“The company has to come to terms with acknowledging and responding to the Nation’s interests. [The old growth deferral] will impact the bottom line. However, we have also known several Nations want to go in a different direction and this prompts us to explore that possibility,” said a spokesperson from Ma-mook via email.
