Amid hints of an impending boom in the Prince Albert and area forestry sector, concerns over timber supply and who’s allowed to harvest it remain.

After comments from Mayor Greg Dionne pushing the province to grant new proposed forestry operations access to local wood, the owner of the Prince Albert pulp mill says much still needs to be worked out when it comes to timber supply for their own operation.
