There appears to be some significant forest removal happening near Waverley, Ontario Tiny Township.
We are told the trees were cut down in the middle of the night in January & February of this winter (April 2015, Photos by Les Stewart).
We went around to take a look.
Facing east up French’s Hill, the Waverley Uplands.
A maple running?
Seems almost like a “war zone” to Danny Beaton and me.
My photographs are facing north east from the “forest” accessed from Marshall Road & Carpenter Sideroad, south of Stamp Sideroad.
See the existing gravel pit entrance on 40 Darby Road? (white arrow).
Could it be:
- 1.6 million litres of water taken from the aquifer at French’s Hill/Waverley Uplands,
- 2.6 million tonnnes of gravel taken annually,
- 190 acres of forest gone (of potentially 600 acres)?
