55. A strip of woodland at least 60 m wide must be preserved on both sides of the river or part of a river designated by the Minister as a salmon river. The strip of woodland is measured from the limit that separates the stand from the environment to be protected or, in the presence of a riparian ecotone, from the limit of the ecotone farthest from the environment to be protected.
Forest development activities are prohibited in that strip of woodland, unless prior authorization is obtained from the Minister in accordance with section 39 of the Sustainable Forest Development Act (chapter A-18.1).
In the case of land immersed following the construction of dams, the strip of woodland begins at the limit of the land where the trees have perished as a result of the immersion.
