"News & Issues" piece on J .D. Irving, which recently achieved "green" approval for more than a half million acres of its Allagash forest by receiving certification from the Forest Stewardship Council. The New Brunswick-based company, often criticized by Canadian environmentalists, plans to go even further by certifying the one million acres it recently acquired from the old Great Nothern empire. Gov. Angus King used the certification as evidence that a proposed new referendum on clear-cutting, the third attempt since 1996, is not needed. The law would mandate state permits for any clear-cutting and prohibit landowners enrolled in the Tree Growth Tax Law from harvesting trees faster than they grow. With details about the certification.
