The paper discusses how Canadian forest ecosystems and resources are threatened because of intensive forestry operations, especially clear-cutting. The paper also looks at how forests have been poorly managed across Canada with some badly designed solutions to the problem of disappearing forest resources. The paper shows how the proposal to export in quantity is a very damaging one under present conditions. The paper is of the opinion that Canada's forest industry needs a new perspective based on balance and diversity, specifically, an ecosystems approach.
From the Paper:"Forestry resources in Canada a few decades ago were available in great abundance. These resources are poorly managed and definitely should not be exported in quantity. Forest covers nearly fifty percent of the total surface area are in Canada. These forests supply about one-fifth of the total world's demand for timber. Forest resources are seen as a renewable resource and they have been exploited. At the same way, forests have been seen as inexhaustible and therefore they have been exploited intensively. For decades, there has been no concern about how these resources might be renewed. Forest resources cannot be renewed and made available without any limits, at least not with present methods."
