Hardwood Forest - Canada - BC - Vancouver - Forest Management
Canada's Forest Products Industry– leader in sustainable forest management.
Canada's rate of deforestation is virtually zero (0.02%) and is not caused by logging. Canada is one of the forest nations that retain the greater extent (near 90%) of it's original forest cover while having a large and thriving forest products industry for more than a hundred years.
In addition, Canada is one of the countries containing the largest extent of protected forests - more than 31 million hectares. More than 75% of Canada's protected forest and other wooded land are considered strictly protected where no resource extraction is allowed.
Only 1⁄2 of Canada's forests are managed for commercial use, and less than 1% is harvested annually, including in the boreal forest. All harvested areas, by law, must be regenerated. Natural regeneration plays a much larger role in Canadian forestry then planting or seeding, accounting for 85%. Still, Canada plants over 500,000,000 trees annually. Almost 90% of Canada’s original forests still remain.
CarlWood is proud to be a part of British Columbia’s largest industry. We believe that as more people realize the environmental benefits of using wood the demand for timber harvested from responsibly managed and harvested forests will be on the rise.
