The proposed Constitution Pipeline (CP) would threaten New York’s brook trout by clear-cutting 1,000 acres of forested land surrounding prime brook trout habitat. This deforestation would include permanent removal of vegetation and tree canopies on either side of 45 trout streams the pipeline would cross 84 different times.1 Because CP would require a 100-foot-wide clear-cut right-of-way along its entire route, that would mean 168,000 feet of permanent streamside deforestation—the length of 467 football fields.
