Our interactive map: 20 years of forest cutting in Quebec

MISE & Agrave; DAY

Forestry remains an important pillar of the Quebec economy today. Even if we no longer cut like in the 80s and 90s, some experts still wonder about our way of cutting and the planning of our forests for the future.

The data listed by our Bureau of Investigation show the extent of the cuts in the past 20 years. The Chief Forester, Louis Pelletier, announced in the last few days a 3% increase in allowable cuts in Quebec for 2023-2028. This scientist appointed by the Council of Ministers, who ensures that we do not cut more than what the forest can give us, indicates that there is no “overexploitation of forestry in Quebec”. & Nbsp;

The fact remains that many issues exist, particularly with regard to the fragmentation of the territory and the thorny question of replanting. Our experts discuss it in the documentary Defender our Forests, on Vrai.
