​More of the saga and a update. I was there and saw the hardwoods around Middle lake just north of Lawlor. I thought those look really good. Little did I know.

This is a May 2018 post mortem of the claim that old growth was cut for biomass. Yes, trees cut up to 200 years old.

The logger was the whistle blower, I think, and a smart cookie.​

Lucas,

Thanks for keeping us up on this story. It is sad reality. The raw resource is there and there will always be exploiters. The biomass crowd has no shame.
