@ModerateCanadian I find your claim about deciduous trees being replanted to be simply illegal in BC hard to believe, without knowing all the reasons. It's normally up to the forest owner to decide what to do, apart from planting foreign species. There could be laws to prevent deforestation, or some other underlying justifications that shouldn't be simplified. We aren't talking about socialist nations here. It's not uncommon to see birch trees being grown over here on purpose, even if coniferous is more common. Plywood/veneer industry always needs good birch as well. Not to mention it's better for firewood.
