This parcel of land has been sold in a way that makes us very happy. A German couple who have roots on the Island have bought the 21 Acres for the sole purpose of preserving the forest, and creating a partnership with Wildwood to practice ecoforestry on the land..
There’s a 21-acre parcel of forested land on the market in Yellow Point, at the end of Roper Road. Yellow Point is a jewel of a rural area that’s like a Gulf Island without the ferries, 20 minutes north of Ladysmith, 25 minutes south of Nanaimo.
The land has not been logged for years, and fifty years ago it was managed by Merv Wilkinson, of Wildwood fame. As Yellow Point residents, we would love to welcome new people to the area who share our appreciation and respect for the forest.

I currently live in the Kootenays (moved here 2 years ago) but would love to go back to the island. I lived in Cedar 16 years and know this area well. I am interested.
I am ready for a change and this sounds very desirable. Would love to come see the property
Please consider alternative paths to steward this land. Reparations to First Nations, rematriation of the land back to its original stewards, should be considered.
