District Planning Information

Forest Management Five-Year Operating Plans

The Forestry Act (1990) mandates the Forest Service of Newfoundland and Labrador to manage the forest resources of the province. Five-year operating plans outline on 1:50,000 scale maps where forest management activities (e.g. timber harvesting, planting, thinning and road construction) are proposed. It is at this level that strategies and policies within the 10-year Provincial Sustainable Forest Management Strategy (PSFMS) are applied.
