Privatizing Crown Land Possible As Forestry Changes

Prince George, B.C- “If you’re in a bad situation don’t worry, it will change, and if you’re in a good situation, don’t worry, it will change.” With that quote, Chief Forester for the Province, Jim Snetsinger, told the Natural Resource Forum in Prince George, that no matter what the challenges, forestry will continue to be an important player in the provincial Economy.

“There has always been immense change in the forest sector” says Snetsinger who says the ripple from the pine beetle impact will resonate in the central interior until at least 2015.
