New logging license awarded for Pine Ridge

Story Picture
Today ceremonies were held in the Mountain Pine Ridge for the signing of a long-term agreement for sustainable logging of that forest reserve. The forty-year license for the Pine Lumber Company applies to those areas which have not been affected by the southern pine bark beetle. The thousands of acres that have been devastated by the beetle will be reforested under a separate contract with another company, Silviculture Belize. Planting activities should begin over the next several months. Pine Lumber has been operating successfully in the Mountain Pine ridge for close to two decades.
