Logging Scars

An aerial shot shows the extensive damage done by logging roads created in a Northern Ontario forest. There is a truck on the road for scale. Over the image is large text reading: Logging Scars.

"Logging scars" refer to the web of sterile roads and rectangular roadside operating areas for heavy equipment, known as landings, overlaying the tapestry of Ontario's boreal forest. They are the lingering footprints of industrial clearcut logging.
