This summer certainly brought its challenges. Check out the article covering the forest health effects after the June heat spell.

Canopy View News | Winter 2020| Issue 10: While you’re spending extra time at home, now is a good time to check that your forest roads are ready for winter (page 5) and make sure that your reforestation plans will be successful (page 3). If you’ve noticed any mushrooms in your woods, be sure to learn all about fungi in the forest on page 6. The next time you walk your land, keep an eye out for declining or dead Western redcedar. You might be able to help scientists better understand why they’ve been declining lately (pg. 8). And as always, be sure to read the quarterly log/non-timber forest product prices report on page 9 – this is especially important if you’re looking to see logs anytime soon.
