The trees of southern Alberta have been disappearing in the past decade.
The province’s Forestry Commission says the numbers are out of control, with more than 20,000 hectares cut down.
It’s a problem that’s getting worse with every year that goes by, and the government is taking steps to tackle it.
“It’s not the end of the world.
It could be the end,” said Greg Anderson, the executive director of the Forest Stewardship Council.
“But it’s not an end to the problem.
It needs to be addressed.”
Anderson said the commission is working with provincial officials and with the industry to improve the tree-cutting process.
“I’m optimistic we’ll be able to work with the forestry industry to help keep them honest with what is happening,” he said.
Forestry companies in northern Alberta say they’ve seen a dramatic increase in demand from timber companies wanting to cut down the trees.
“We’re seeing a lot of pressure from the timber industry to cut trees,” said Tim Anderson, executive director, Forest Steward Council.
Anderson says the industry has already started using an “expert-led approach” to cutting down trees.
They’ve hired an experienced team of experts to ensure they follow proper practices.
Anderson said that will help keep the trees from being cut down and that the government will help in any way it can.
But he says the government needs to make sure it has a plan to keep the forests from being destroyed.
“If we want to keep them going, we need to do everything we can to keep it alive,” Anderson said.
He also pointed to the loss of trees from the city of Fort McMurray as a case in point.
“There’s been a lot more than the city has seen,” he added.
“Fort McMurry is losing trees, and we’re seeing more and more trees die every day.”
