Forests it seems are the natural
habitat of myth.
In his opening address, Forestry Minister Eric Abetz
identified one of the major challenges facing the. forest industry as the need to convince people that.
tree farming is neither bad for the environment, nor bad for farmers or bad for regions. Forestry ecologist, David Lindenmayer then identified the myth of certainty, giving a dramatic example of how rapidly forest management changed
in Canada with a transition from sawn timber to pulp production in five years as a result of the changing distribution of a pest, the mountain pine beetle.
