PAG Documents

The Prince Albert FMA is located just north of Prince Albert in the heart of Saskatchewan. This area of boreal forest contains mixed-wood stands on the west and softwood dominated stands to the north and east. Common tree species are trembling aspen, pine, spruce, balsam, poplar, and birch.

The total area (land, water, swamp) of the FMA is 3.3 million hectares with 2.6 million being forested.  Timber harvesting is expected to be possible on 1.6 million hectares or 58% of the forested area.  

The previous Forest Management Plan established a sustainable harvest rate of 2.88 million m3 per year.  The annual harvest area is approximately 8,400 hectares (<1% of the harvestable landbase.
