It will discuss the initiatives and techniques used of both private wood-lot owners and large industries in developing and implementing a forest management strategy. Nova Scotia is comprised of many forested ecosystems; hardwoods, others with softwoods and some with a mixture of both species. In order to maintain and develop these various ecosystems it is important to know how forest management impacts not only the forest itself but also other ecosystems within. For example, a clear-cut harvest can be compared to the same impact of a forest fire. However, forest fires do not remove everything which clear-cutting does.
Not only do the forests provide some people with homes, but also provides a popular setting for ecotourism, which includes hiking, camping, bird watching and other outdoor adventure or nature study activities. All these activities and products the forests provide us are at great risk from deforestation. Not only do forests provide us with all this but also protect soil from erosion and reduces the risks of landslides and avalanches. Trees help sustain freshwater supplies therefore are an important factor in the availability of one of life’s basic needs. Forests affect the climate and are also a very important source of oxygen.
These areas include sustainability, materials, energy efficiency, land use, and waste reduction. Green buildings are not only designed for present use, but consideration is also been given to future uses as well. An adaptable structure can be "recycled" many times over the course of its useful life. If specific technical issues prevent use of the building for a new function, then the materials used in its construction are designed to facilitate ease of recycling and reprocessing of materials. Buildings consume a variety of materials in their construction.

Other bodies were involved in looking into the aspects for preventing the fires initially. In other words, how to improve on site security measures, how to promote a safer working environment etc. that would help prevent such fires. Using timber as a construction material has been becoming ever more popular recently. Martin (2009) suggests in a report into timber frame construction and its likely impact on fire fighting tactics that the increase in popularity is due to its many practical advantageous attributes, such as the ability to prefabricate parts of buildings offsite, leading to a faster erection of the building onsite.
The tannic acid or tannin is already present in woods like oak, walnut, and mahogany. The oxalic acid is a unique wood bleach, which may help on the darkening effect of tannic acid on wood. It does not only brighten the wood, but it can protect the wood from external exposures. Application of stains and preservatives on wood is highly recommended. Both can be applied to wooden made garden sheds to prevent damage.

Canada should proceed to support organic farming because it is healthier for the Canadians choosing to eat it. In Canada organic farming should continue taking place because it is healthier for the environment, Canadians profit from it and the food is also less disease prone. This form of agriculture prevents worsening the environment by minimizing its pollution as well as helping to sustain it.
