Forest Planning

Forest companies holding certain types of licences must develop long-term plans explaining how they will manage the forest resources on their areas. Twenty-year forest management plans address all aspects of forest management, including inventory, harvesting, renewal, roads and public consultation. As they develop their plans, licence holders work closely with the Ministry of Environment. Public involvement is an important part of the process.

As companies put their plans into practice, they report on their progress to the public through annual reports. The ministry also evaluates the company's performance and compliance.
