Prince Albert Forest Management Agreement (FMA)

Long Term Planning for the FMA

A Forest Management Plan (FMP) must be prepared to provide strategic-level direction for management of forest resources in a FMA area.  

These plans establish clear goals, objectives, and strategies to guide forest management activities; set the desired future forest conditions; and attempt to minimize land and resource use conflicts.

Forest Management Plan’s include an assessment of sustainability for the area under management and include forest estate modelling to determine the sustainable rate of harvest for a period of approximately 200 years.
