How many jobs could be lost if we do not protect the forest?

A model of an uncontrolled moderate to severe spruce budworm outbreak in the Atlantic region done by researchers at the University of New Brunswick, predicts job loss could be between 46,000 and 56,000 person-years of employment over 30 years. This represents 1500-1900 person-years each year.
