As I understand the regulations concerning clear cutting, there appears to be a very serious gap in the rules. If you are a member of the PEI Forestry Management there are strict rules on clear cutting. It is mandatory the cleared area is left in good condition, and the area is re-planted. However, those people not members of the forestry can cut and clear vast areas with no responsibility to repair or re-plant. Government must act to change this serious loop hole in regulations. I see huge forested areas cut for profit and the debris left to rot. These people care not about the future, just about making a quick buck. This is not an issue that requires debate or panels to study, it needs immediate action now. I plead with our new provincial government to act while we still have a forest left.
God Bless and keep reading
