178 – Devouring The Boreal Forest

I snapped this picture driving through the Mitsue Industrial Park near Slave Lake, home to a pulp and paper mill and several other industrial complexes.  It really is amazing the constant flow of trucks hauling massive loads of logs on the highways in this area and I just hope that these companies are doing their best to balance the environmental concerns of the beautiful Lesser Slave Lake region with the need to clearcut areas of the forest, and stockpile this natural resource.
