Forest Management Plan and Technical Review Comments

Sakâw Askiy Management Inc is amending the strategic 20-year Forest Management Plan (FMP) for the Prince Albert Forest Management Agreement (PA FMA) area.  The amendment is being written to address current operational realities that were not sufficiently addressed in the FMP itself:

The desired outcome of this Amendment is a framework for managing sawlog and hardwood utilization issues that is ecologically appropriate and ensures the sustainability of the forest is not compromised, while providing flexibility in forest management planning and compliance to deal with changing market conditions.  

The public is invited to comment on an initial draft of the Amendment.  

Links to the draft document and a presentation on various wood supply model runs to learn about the impacts of these operational realities on the sustainable wood supply, are found below.  The findings from that modeling work have been used in developing the practices, operational controls and monitoring proposed in the draft Amendment for dealing with these current utilization issues.

[Amendment #1 - Operational Realities]
