Intensive Forest Management Across Canada: Panel Discussion



Event Date and Time
November 8th, 2023 at 12:00pm MST to November 8th, 2023 at 1:30pm MST

Sustainable management of the forests in Canada continues to evolve particularly in the west where the move toward enhanced management is accelerating. Enhanced forest management includes intensive silviculture operations such as pre-commercial and commercial thinning (PCT, CT) and other modifications to what has traditionally been done in the boreal forests. Intensive silviculture is needed to secure the future fibre supply and also provide the data required to address other concerns such as impacts on biodiversity and carbon (climate change). As enhanced forest management practice takes hold it will impact other sectors operating in the working forest such as Oil and Gas and Energy Distribution as forest land management becomes more complex.

This webinar will provide a brief overview of Intensive Forest Management. It will also include a panel discussion with experts who will share their knowledge on the practice.
