Sustainable Forest Management Plan

Sustainable Forest Management (SFM) can be defined as management to maintain and enhance the long-term health of forest ecosystems, while providing ecological, economic, social, and cultural opportunities for the benefit of present and future generations.

Sutainable Forest Management Plan
Defined Forest Area - 2.32MB PDF
To become certified to the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z809-02 standard, companies must develop an SFM Plan with the general public, which addresses the range in forest values for a Defined Forest Area (DFA).

The Companies began development of the SFM Plan in June 2003 with the initiation of a Public Advisory Group (PAG) to identify local-level forest values, as well as objectives, indicators, and targets to ensure that those values were addressed.

Through the PAG, as well as additional public involvement initiatives (including the Public Advisory Committee (PAC)), the Companies completed their first SFM Plan in April 2004.

The CSA Forestry Standard was updated in 2008, and the Sustainable Forest Management Plan for Tolko (High Level) and La Crete Sawmills Ltd has been revised to meet this new standard. Below is the new SFM Plan (September 2016). The map above shows the Defined Forest Area for which the SFM Plan applies.
