Logging on hold at Cawthra Bush

By Mike Funston Staff reporter

Mississauga city officials have confirmed there won't be any further logging in Cawthra Bush.

The 40-hectare woodlot, located in the heart of the city, will essentially be left alone, at east for the next five years, while parks staff study the woodland further and prepare a long-range master plan.

"There will be exceptions for safety reasons, such as clearing fallen trees or to remove invasive species of plants," said, David Main, a city spokesperson.

The interim recommendations on the future of the bush will be presented to the public for input at a meeting on Dec. 10 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mississauga Seniors Centre.

The city-owned bush, located south of the Queen Elizabeth Way, east of Cawthra Rd., became the focus of controversy in recent years when the municipality logged some old trees to build a watermain through the area.

Other trees were cut or trimmed as part of a forest management plan introduced by the city.

Recently, the discovery there of a provincially rare amphibian, the Jefferson salamander, was verified through testing by the University of Guelph. The species is found only in a few areas of the province.

It will make a difference!
