Government of New Brunswick

The harvest and growth of forests on Crown lands are guided by long-term forest management plans, which ensure that forestry activities are aligned with the long term social, economic, and environmental sustainability objectives set by the Government. Prepared by Registered Professional Foresters (RPFs), forest management plans consider forest growth and changes up to 80 years into the future. Updated every 5 years, these detailed plans consider sustainable harvest levels, silviculture treatments, habitat for fish & wildlife, fire and insect protection, recreation, watershed protection, and the road network.
