“Its time for legislators to adopt progressive forest policy that will re- invigorate local forest- dependent economies and provide an immediate transition away from the needless logging destruction of rare Old- Growth coastal rain forests toward ecological management of the silvicultural land- base. A transition from corporate tenures, to community- controlled forestry; from the export of raw resources, to value- added production of locally- manufactured finished wood products, that generate far more more employment of skilled labour, with far less wood.”
