Landfill will force removal of 9.5 hectares of forest habitat


Construction of the landfill will require the removal of 9.5 hectares of significant forest habitat. The forest compensation plan proposes to plant a mix of larger trees in areas where visual screening is desirable, and whips and seedlings in extensive reforestation areas. It will take decades before the lost forest habitat is replaced. COLA will need to monitor the forest compensation commitment and hold the company and city accountable for successful forest habitat replacement.
