Friends of Nature have been working with an as yet un-named group to protest the terrible devastation going on in our forests in order to supply wood to the biomass furnace in Port Hawkesbury. I urge you to sign the petition and to read the background information on how not “green” biomass technology has turned out to be.



Please help to spread the word:

Many Thanks,
Syd Dumaresq, Chair, Friends of Nature

    This was a stupid project right from the first and anyone that couldn’t see that should not be in power. I live in the country and see the different woodlots clear cut and basically destroyed. I see the truckloads of cut “trees” in my area. These trees – some as small as 2 inches around – were not allowed to mature but clear cut. Also, there doesn’t seem to be any policy to reforest – why not ? Stop this raping our forests. Build more wind turbines – NOW !

      Hi Wilfred, thanks for taking the time to comment. The petition was time-sentsitive and hosted over at and is no longer an affective petition. However, it is on an ongoing concern.
