Robena Weatherly, a forest pathologist, who has studied mountain pine beetle in the 50's has sold her family woodlot to Community Forest International. They bought the 350-acre property (about 141 hectares) through its carbon offset program. The original family land grant dates to 1812. She has refused may offers for harvesting her timber over the years. Carbon offsetting is the latest trend in recent years up this way, but realistically very few in numbers doing it.

I think hardwood and white pine ground possibly, but not fir, aspen, white birch ground. Yes, I could see it on land with the right forest covertype with long lived species. I still think it will be very few in numbers though.

Most of what is south of Fredericton is low lands unless you find a hill up out of the swamp. Grand Lake is a huge forest swamp.

The New Brunswick government bent from nearly 30 % no touch to maybe 12 %. And now they are thinking of going back to 27%, but that difference has already been clear cut. And a lot of that 12 % was what anyone would call low productivity forest, not prime ground. The 18% they took was the good stuff. Chase the money. :D
Move'n on.
