New forestry roads in northwestern Ontario show how wood moves around

A proposed amendment to the Nagagami Forest Management Plan highlights how wood moves around northwestern Ontario much more than before — meaning logs that used to go to the nearest town, sometimes need to move from one forest unit to another before being cut into lumber.

Nagagami Forest Management Inc., the organization that manages the forest around Hornepayne, Ont., wants to make some major amendments to the existing plan, including the construction of new roads.
