Times Colonist - Thumbs Up To the Forest Practices Board

Sparked by concerns about logging of massive trees near Port Renfrew, the board called for voluntary curbs on logging of trees that "can inspire awe and reverence, a sense of spirituality and connection to past events."

Thumbs Up: To the Forest Practices Board, for the first step toward better protection for ancient, giant trees in B.C.'s forests. Sparked by concerns about logging of massive trees near Port Renfrew, the board called for voluntary curbs on logging of trees that "can inspire awe and reverence, a sense of spirituality and connection to past events." Voluntary efforts by forest companies answerable to shareholders aren't enough, but the report is a start toward real protection for trees with historic significance every bit as real as ancient ruins.
