Biomass energy in nova scotia

In Nova Scotia they plan to use biomass to create energy.This energy will only produce 3% of the province's need of energy. This may be minor, but it is a way to decrease dependance on oil for energy. Now, there are many people agianst this saying it will reduce the forest in Nova Scotia. Now I believe that if they would like to use trees then it must be mandatory of the company to replant more tress then the trees they cut so that they will still have trees to use and for biomass and also to suck up CO2 thus increasing the economy, providing jobs that will be sustanable for the futur and reduce their carbon footprint.

Nova Scotia Power and NewPage Port Hawkesbury have reached an agreement to develop a $200-million facility to generate electricity by burning biomass.
They are planning a 60-megawatt biomass project that could produce three per cent of the province's electricity to supply 50,000 homes.
