This blog/website was created on June 21, 2016; I stopped updating it on June 21, 2022. As such it provides a record of sorts of goings-on related to forests and forestry in Nova Scotia over that interval.
It will be maintained at this URL (nsforestnotes.ca) until July 21, 2023.
The site is archived regularly on the Internet Archive Wayback Machine so by July 2023 all of the material currently on the site will still be in that archive. The website on the archive is essentially a perfect replica of this one, is searchable, and can be viewed in different stages of its development.
Items on this blog/website that are posted chronologically are (i) links to news items, found under In the News and its subpages; and (ii) “posts” (the blog component of the website), found under About this Site/All Posts
I am not leaving the topic of forestry in NS entirely. I have set up a new blog/website at www.versicolor.ca/nstriad which will focus on the unfolding of the Triad in NS over the next year or so. That seems appropriate as nsforestnotes.ca was initiated before the Lahey process (The Independent Review of Forest Practices in Nova Scotia) was conceived, and I have followed it for now almost 4 years beyond when the ‘Lahey Report‘ was tabled (Aug 21, 2018).
I post various natural history materials on several websites I currently maintain or contribute to (see www.versicolor.ca). I am setting up a new website at www. versicolor.ca/chebuctomm which will focus on the natural history of the Chebucto Peninsula which I consider to be my bioregion.
It will be a while before these two new websites (www.versicolor.ca/nstriad and www.versicolor.ca/chebuctomm) have much on them. When they are further along I will make a post about them on this blog in case some subscribers might want to have peak at them.
