New: Forest Management Plan Website

The Forest companies in the lesser Slave Region are working on their new Forest Management Plan. The Lesser Slave Lake Regional Forest Management Plan is a roadmap for forest use and sustainability in the Slave Lake region. The plan is due for submission in 2020 and approval in 2021, and will apply to the region for the following ten years. Slave Lake area forest products companies are jointly developing the plan, creating shared goals, standards, and objectives. The success of the plan and the strength of these objectives depends on public input. The companies welcome and are seeking public input into the plan. Together, we can create a sustainable, multi-purpose forest in the Slave Lake region.
