BC’s Private Forest Land
Students walk in foresters footsteps as they estimate tree heights
prior to harvesting or preserving. This activity can be done in any forest
setting. To obtain a global perspective, students are encouraged to study
the differences between the facts and statistics on BCs forest industry
with those of other countries (information provided). Tracing the trends
and rises or falls in employment, exports and other economic data can
be done with the handy profiles included. Students may be encouraged to
be economists and do their own forecasts for the industry
based on the information they know.
Ten per cent of all domestic waste is burned in waste incinerators. If the temperature in the incinerator is allowed to fall below 900°C, some plastics, pesticides and wood preservatives can produce dioxins which are extremely poisonous.
