Quebec calls for public consultation on wood harvesting and forestry activities in Estrie

November 11, 2022  By Government of Quebec

Quebec’s Ministry of Natural Resources and Forests is inviting the public to express their views between November 10th and December 5th, 2022, on the forestry activities listed in the Estrie Operational Integrated Forest Management Plans. The department is interested in learning about the concerns of forest users related to planned forest activities in Estrie, Que.

During this period, the public is invited to comment on potential new forest operation zones, specifically regarding:

  • Potential forest operation zones (secteurs d’intervention potentiels) for commercial and non-commercial silvicultural work (timber harvesting, field preparation, reforestation, plantation maintenance and pre-commercial thinning);
  • Main roads and infrastructure to be constructed or improved where development activities are considered.

Interested parties may view the Estrie Operational Integrated Forest Management Plan documents and provide comments online until 11:59 p.m. on December 5 2022, at Québec.ca/consultations-foret-estrie.
