PROPOSED LOGGING for MAUDE ISLAND, above QUEEN CHARLOTTE and the VILLAGE of SKIDEGATE, HAIDA GWAII
Proposed logging on Maude Island as simulated in Google Earth.

Teal Jones, Sandspit has plans to log the remaining old growth on Maude Island. They would also like to log the watershed behind Queen Charlotte and a few blocks around the Village of Skidegate. The KMZ file will show the block locations as simulated in Google Earth.

The file was made by filling the Teal-Jones plan areas with a clearcut logging pattern. Google Earth translates this into a 3-D image and gives you the ability to view the proposed logging from different angles and heights.
