Yes, but only selective logging, no clearcutting, and a plan for regrowth

@97N57G3Conservativefrom Ontario  answered…3wks

Any true old growth forest needs to be left alone and preserved. However there’s no issue with selective logging any other healthy forests that aren’t as old as long as the forest ecosystem is stable enough

@97B88MQConservativefrom Alberta  answered…4wks

Yes, but the trees must be replanted immediately after, and they a have to be of the same species of the tree that was cut down

@92SBLVXConservativefrom British Columbia  answered…7mos

Old growth trees are no more important than young trees and consume way less CO2 than the young trees. The natural process in the forest is for fire to destroy mature trees so the forest can be renewed with young healthy trees.

@924WNLMLiberalfrom Ontario  answered…8mos

Only if the land owners agree. Including Indigenous lands. And only selective with a plan for re-growth.

@8ZN4YG4from British Columbia  answered…9mos

There are plenty of forests that are managed by forestry companies. However, we should also preserve a lot of our old growth forests as well/and other public lands to drastically reduce CO2 emissions.

Selective logging, if trees are still living healthy they must be left to survive, if trees are deemed as dead or dying, they should be removed and replaced with newly planted trees.

Limited harvest with approval of indigenous owners if they own the area.
