Forests, and the products they produce, are crucial to repairing our world’s climate and creating a low carbon future. 🪵🌳

For every tree harvested, BC replants 3 in it's place and works to ensure that different species are planted to continue our diverse and rich forests.

The provincial government’s plans to modernize the forest sector, summarized in what is known as the Intentions Paper, have created uncertainty for many members of the forest industry. Community forests are no exception. The recommendations of the Old Growth Strategic Review, the Forest and Range Practices Act improvement initiative, and the changes to the Forest Act brought in by Bill 28 are setting the stage for major shifts in the forest industry. Much of the policy reform is focused on the industry’s major licensees yet the changes affect all tenure holders.
