PORT ALBERNI – Logging company Island Timberlands is putting its plans to harvest a roadside section of forest near the Alberni Highway summit on hold. They are pressing the pause button on the logging project after being hit with a wave of outrage from citizens in the Valley. Many say a roadside cut will destroy the beauty of the region and could affect tourism.

Today the chainsaws were silenced, but the logging company is saying harvesting in some capacity will likely take place at some point. Island Timberlands is now preparing to reopen lines of communication with local stakeholders to see what is the best course of action.
