The Forests of Alberta’s Southern Eastern Slopes: Forest or Forestry?

August 16, 2010

August 2010 update of AWA’s position paper.

They provide clean water for communities across Alberta and Saskatchewan and into Manitoba, recreation opportunities for southern Alberta’s burgeoning population, and habitat for a wide range of fish and wildlife species…

The forests in southern Alberta are managed principally to provide a sustained yield of timber for the forestry industry. Other functions of healthy forests – including watershed and environmental services, recreational opportunities, and wildlife habitat – are managed as secondary concerns…”
