79.1. The volume of timber to be salvaged under a special plan forms part of the volume that an agreement holder is authorized to harvest in the management unit covered by the special plan under the management permit provided for in section 86. Where the agreement of the agreement holder does not concern the management unit affected by the natural disaster, the volume to be salvaged is substituted for a corresponding volume to which the agreement holder is entitled in another management unit, designated by the Minister among the management units covered by the agreement holder’s agreement. The Minister may, where the Minister considers that there is a risk of timber being lost, allow the annual volume under the agreement to be exceeded, for the time and on the conditions determined by the Minister.
Where an agreement holder fails to participate in a special plan, the annual volume authorized under the management permit concerned shall be reduced, for the current or for the following year, by a volume equal to the volume that has to be harvested by the agreement holder.
