Ah, just as I expected. Thanks for that Tungsten. The CIA strikes again.
This article says the clean up is finished.
A lot of cedars get brown patches this time of year, it's natural for them to do that. However, I spoke to an arborist 2 days ago & he said it's worse this year due to the summer we had (summers we are having).
There are way less sawmills in BC than just a few years ago. There are even less sawmills that can handle large trees. (Most mills now are not set up to handle logs of that diameter). That being said, as old growth is increasingly harder to find, the value & price goes up exponentially.
I have no issues with clear cutting areas that have already been harvested / replanted. It's the most efficient way to log. But for the sake of planet earth's occupants, please leave the old growth alone. Hopefully Horgan will do something about it.
I spoke to a guy years ago whose company (forget the name) was doing environmental clean up of all the old DEW line stations. He said it was a real mess & a really big job. Any idea if they are finished doing that?
