Forestry’s bright future cannot resemble a bygone era
Forestry will continue to provide good jobs for thousands of Canadians from coast to coast, but the diversity of those jobs, the skills needed, and the products they produce, will be as diverse as the forests themselves.
If managed properly, forests can play an important part in our fight against climate change. How we harvest the trees, what we do with branches, small trunks, and other debris that are normally left unused or burned, and what products we produce from the harvested timber are all critical parts of that process, writes Richard Cannings.
