Translation and adaptation of a learning situation created by Louise Roy and Monique Cloutier from CSPN. Presentation of the situation : Camp grounds in federal and provincial parks have a regulation that prohibits wood being brought in for camp fires. Wood must be purchased on site. Do you know why? In fact, the reason why is the presence of numerous exotic insects that attack trees, including a little insect originally from Asia. Present in Canada since 2002, it has been found in the Montréal région since 2011. Known as the Emerald Ash Borer, this insect attacks ash trees. Transporting logs from one region to another increases the risk of the insect being spread across Québec. But how, as featured on the poster opposite, can a single piece of firewood destroy millions of trees? And once these trees are destroyed, what are the consequences for a forestry producer?
