Save B.C. Forests

British Columbians have been logging for one hundred years. Now B.C’s trees are dwindling. Can B.C. logging and B.C. forests survive?




What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

If all our newspaper was recycled, we could save about two hundred fifty million trees per year. Also, in the past five years, enough usable logs to fill logging trucks bumper to bumper from Vancouver to Halifax and almost all the way back have been wasted.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

It has helped me truly respect B.C. trees. It has helped me realize that each person must do their part to sustain and preserve B.C. forests.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

First Nations peoples knew and respected the B.C. forests better than we do. They used everything they took and didn't take too much.
