With Resolute Forest Products saying it wants to decommission and redevelop its mill property in Fort Frances, Ont., an expert in environmental policy says the forestry giant could still keep its logging rights to the nearby Crossroute Forest even without a plant in the northwestern Ontario town.

That comes as Resolute's sustainable forestry licence for the Crossroute Forest is set to expire in 2022. The planning process for new licences, including gathering public input, typically starts a couple of years ahead of time.
