Like oil and gas in Alberta, forestry is experiencing an intense bust cycle that is quietly killing small town BC, says the Financial Post’s Gabriel Friedman. In related news: BC’s latest trade mission to Asia; and logging convoy leaders target every affected BC community. Elsewhere: the US puts WTO dispute settlement system in peril; New Zealand is happy with China trade deal; and US hardwood producers keep pleading for relief.

In Forestry/Climate news: the choice before us by a climate crisis realist; Oregon puts a high price on fighting future wildfires; the uncertain future of Michigan’s wood-fired power plants; the negative impact of wildfires on Arizona’s streams; and a rare deer-like forest species is photographed for the first time in Vietnam.

Finally, a Tree Frog congrats to AF&PA’s sustainability award winners.
