Forest Health and Management

Forest Banner

Over half of Saskatchewan is covered by trees. Forests are important economically and environmentally. They provide Saskatchewan with timber and other products. The boreal forest stores carbon and purifies air and water while helping to regulate our climate. Sustainable management of this important resource is crucial. Our forests must be managed in a way that balances the goal of environmental protection, social good and economic development.
