One thought on “Ayton farm corporation fined for clear cutting

    Rather than a fine, perhaps the farm corporation should have been required to restore the woodlot by replanting the mix of species that were clear cut. Otherwise, the fine could just be seen as the cost of acquiring some additional arable land. Or, alternatively, the fine might be perceived as just another mechanism to raise revenue with no real environmental benefit. Restoration is a far better deterrent.
