Still No Response on Recommendations Three Months after NS Forestry Review Released

A report made public in August called for fundamental changes to how trees are harvested in Nova Scotia at the time. But three months later, the province has still not responded to any of the recommendations in the report.

According to federal figures, about 90 per cent of wood harvested in Nova Scotia is clear-cut. On Crown land, that number drops to 65 percent but the report is calling for it be reduced to between 20 and 25 per cent.
