Tom Quirk of the East Kootenays holds one of the 830 woodlot licences that enable farmers to manage Crown forests independently, as profiled in Wim Tewinkel’s photographic study Forest Life (BC Woodlot Associations $39.95) featuring more than 100 woodlots around B.C. Tewinkel operated a woodlot near Pemberton but lost it due to a settlement connected to the 2010 Olympics involving local First Nations. He remains president of the Sea to Sky Woodlot Association.
