I'm thinking that our replanting practises must keep up with deforestion or it will be.

I'm taking out five trees from my property tomorrow and know what I am thinking? Those five huge trees do a lot of water up take, how will this affect my groundwater situation if at all.

To be fair - they've changed it again to note the error was DriveBC and here's an update:
A Castanet reader tells us that a 25-foot wide mudslide has washed out the road west of Faulder just off the paved section.

Larry Bate tells Castanet a vehicle crashed into the hole leaving two people injured.

Castanet has reached out to Bate for more details and we will provide them as soon as they are available.

Oh God, that's bad. I've driven that road several times and prefer it over highways.

Haven't heard how the people are yet except injured. Hope they will be okay. They would never have seen that before it was too late. How awful.

Beetle killed trees that have had to be removed leaving the forest bare is also a fact contributing to water problems.

these are not facts and clearly show how little time you actually did spend in the bush recreational vehicles especially snowmobiles have zero impact on landslides and my personal favorite dams for grow ops that made me laugh pretty hard. building roads in the bush logging and new housing subdivisions contribute more than any of your ridiculous facts your facts are more like rants from an eco nut
