Chapter VII – Harvest optimization, forest regeneration and soil protection
Division I – Harvest and optimum use of ligneous matter
During the construction, improvement or repair of a road, the construction of a power transmission line, the setting up of a piling area, the installation of a forest camp or the setting up or expansion of a sandpit, the trees that have the characteristics indicated in the forestry permit, the sylvicultural prescription or other document authorizing the activity must be harvested.
- To avoid wasting wood
It should be noted that even though repairs to and maintenance of a road do not form part of the work (construction, improvement or closure of a multiple use road) that must be authorized pursuant to the Sustainable Forest Development Act , prior authorization under the Act is nevertheless required to harvest merchantable trees from the right-of-way during repairs or maintenance.
