Logging to Supply Timber vs Logging to Supply Water: Is There a Difference?

August 9, 2013

Wild Lands Advocate article, April/May 2013, by Nigel Douglas. Current forest management practices in the South Eastern Slopes exploit the already limited timber resources while increasing water flows. This causes negative environmental effects and increases the potential for man-made flood disasters.

“We can indeed manipulate water volumes in rivers by the way we manage forests, whether or not we have the ability to do this safely is by no means clear.”

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
