Nova Scotia's Department of Environment has laid charges in connection with a clear cutting incident inside Long Lake Provincial Park.
Charges under the Crown Lands Act were laid Friday against Dexter Construction, Scott and Stewart Forestry Consultants, and a subsidiary of Scott, Resourcetec Inc.
The damage was discovered in November inside the 2,095-hectare park. About 3.8 hectares of park land just off Old Sambro Road was cut.
If convicted, the companies could face penalties such as fines or an order for land remediation.
