Editor: This land clearing and tree cutting project is going on right now at 3352 200 St. — during nesting season, March to August.

It is against the law and could make for an interesting story for The Times.

There is a lot of clear cutting and deforestation taking place in the Brookswood–Fernridge area of Langley at present.

Bev Allen,

Langley

Editor's note — Following publication of this letter on Thursday, April 3, The Times was contacted by the owner of the property. The owner of the property showed The Times his permit from the ministry of forests, which allows him to sell timber harvested on the property. Langley Township does not have a tree-cutting bylaw in place at present, so owners are free to cut down trees without permission from the Township.
