INTRODUCTION
In 1987 I wanted to find an alternaitve way to log the forest, A way that did not destroy the forest, but a way of making moneie from the forests around me. It did not take long to the old growth forests were locked in ,tfl's .  In 1990 a young lady took it apon her self to find me a way. A 70 acer peice of old growth forest , from the small bisnius program.
Only one problem, Forestry policy
"YOU MUST CLEAR CUT"  = the removel of all trees on any given area.

She never let up. This was when she had me seek out land for a woodlot.
After creating the first step, all I had to do was wait for the paper work.  see woodlot map
After 12 years of waiting, I have still not made 1$ from theis peice of forest.
Papers can sit around for 12 years. I could not.
I had access  to an 8 acer peice of land and the will to prove the impossible"" selective harvest on the west coast"  It was my chance to , not make mony but creat proof.
