JARVIS - The wind energy company Nextera suffered a public relations setback last fall when it dismantled a tree containing an eagle’s nest near Fisherville.
With the permission of the Ministry of Natural Resources, Nextera did the deed at dawn on a November morning. The nest was a recent addition to the neighbourhood and was located where three wind turbines were ready to go.
