Rebuilding a Forest The work may not be getting the headlines, but hundreds of Cape Bretoners are rebuilding a resource which their families and local industries depend on. An overmature, neglected forest which was ravaged by the spruce budworm is on the mend. With funding from federal/provincial forestry development agreements, landowners, silviculture woodsworkers and the forest industry are securing a forestry future for Cape Breton. Since many landowners lack the skill, time or means to do their own work, silviculture contractors have stepped in to help improve the productivity oflhese forest lands. In Cape Breton alone during the last 10 years, this silviculture industry has grown to the extent that 57 approved contractors now employ about 350 trained woodsworkers. These trained woodsworkers are doing important jobs, and they're doing them close to home where they count the most. Their efforts and the continued investment by the federal and provincial governments are renewing the vitality of the forest resource and are strengthening the local economy. Wi'.
