Province Seeks Feedback On Forestry Plans

Department of Natural Resources (to July 2018)

October 28, 2014 11:58 AM

The government today, Oct. 28, posted new maps on the Department of Natural Resources website that show planned Western Crown fibre harvests.

In many cases, the county-by-county maps show which harvesting method will be employed.

Each map includes a deadline for providing feedback to the department, which will try to respond to comments within 10 days of that date.

New maps and updates will be posted frequently over the coming months, so those interested should check the site regularly.

To share thoughts on proposed harvest plans, e-mail Jillian.Weldon-Genge@novascotia.ca and include the harvest area reference number from the map.

On Sept. 30, the department released its first Western Crown harvest maps. These and future maps are part of the department's effort to be more open and transparent.
