EAC: Government kills key forestry commitments

pathA document released by the Ecology Action Centre documents key steps backwards in the Nova Scotia government’s commitments to the 2011-2012 Natural Resources Strategy for forestry as expressed in the 5-year update released 2 days ago. “The update indicated that DNR is …developing a new Crown Land Forest Resource Management Policy that abandons the 2011 clearcutting reduction policy, allows continued whole‐tree harvesting (harvesting tops and branches to feed biomass markets), may reinstate public funding for herbicide application and once again permit herbicide spraying on Crown lands. DNR has also abandoned plans to implement a provincial annual allowable cut.” View EAC document.
